TUCSON - Nearly 60,000 Central American children have entered the U.S. since late last year. News 4 Tucson recently learned most of them have already been reunited with family members to await trial in immigration court.

Before the number of migrant children coming into the U.S. spiked, the Department of Health and Human Services was already operating 100 permanent facilities, shelters, like the one here in Tucson.

When asked about that location, Kenneth Wolfe, an HHS spokesperson, responded, "We do not identify regular/permanent Unaccompanied Alien Children program facilities, for the safety and security of minors and staff at the shelters."

But he did share, there are currently more than 6,000 children dispersed among those 100 shelters.

Since last October, nearly 45,000 children have gone through the system. HHS says 96 percent of them have been placed with a sponsor, who is typically a family member or guardian.

There is no requirement for these sponsors to be U.S. citizens.

‘’We do not identify....”

We do have some tax returns of conservative groups from the IRS, if you are interested.

No one has yet to define .. 'family'

Who does a fifteen year old girl get sent to by mama and papa from Central America ?

Ok, Marissa, your uncle Tito in Colorado USA will take care of you ... here's the last phone number we had for him ... be careful, honey ... buhbye.

How did the regime perform this miracle? The RATS and RINOs are always telling us that the illegal aliens hide out in the shadows and we don't know who or where they are. Somebody is lying to the American people again.

Since late last year. And we’re hearing about this now.

Makes me wonder what the Marxist in Chief has up his sleeve that we’ll only find about in 2015. When it’s too late, of course.

You want to know what he has up his sleeve? Listen to Professor Turley. It’s frightening.

How do we know they’re really related?

The State Dept wanted Meriam Ibrahim’s children to have a dna test before she is allowed into the US so lets require that for these illegals and their alleged families.

In 10-20 years we'll hear all of the horrible abuse stories and the US gov’t will be sued and shell out billions to families that sent kids here illegally who were given free educations and all sorts of stuff. The one or two kids that go on to law school with their minority scholarship after amnesty allows them their law license will reward the parents that sent their kids off to be raped and abused with millions— the American dream!

On Fox news there was a story of a govt hired contractor that had taken out an ad to find people to take children in for $6000 a month! What a sex offenders dream! Sorry I don’t have a link.

If there were infants or toddlers that had nowhere to go I can’t say I wouldn’t offer to take one in, and wouldn’t want money. But any child older then that, I’m sorry to say, can be a threat to your family. And if they’re taken in by evil people or have already been abused, we’re allowing in the next generation of criminal. Like we need more, illegal or not.

The article said 96% reunited or sponsored. So that is about 57,000 families or individuals out of 11,000,000 illegals.

Don’t doubt for a minute the MSM, Dems and Obama are hiding the stories of missing kids in villages in Central America. They were not ALL sent away by their parents. We’d probably be surprised at just how many of them were kidnapped.

Because their families paid to bring them here.

So WHY aren't they being arrested for human trafficking or child endangerment?
