While much of the focus in the illegal immigrant surge has been on border security, the federal government does a poor job of ensuring relatives who claim children who enter the U.S. illegally are giving them the care they need, according to internal audits that suggest problems remain despite years of warnings.
The Obama administration says its priority is to make sure the children get a fair hearing and protections to which they are entitled but the recent surge has so overwhelmed officials that they are cutting corners in background checks, meaning some children are turned over to parents who cannot provide for them or, in the worst of cases, could be endangering them.
One nonprofit estimated as many as 10 percent of the children are being sent to live in unacceptable or dangerous conditions. Given the numbers crossing the border, that could translate into thousands of children eventually having to be rescued by local child services agencies.
Theres such a large pressure on social workers to reunify children quickly, and [while] the protocols of what background checks a sponsor has to go through [have] been reduced, the number of home visits has [also] been reduced, said Caitlin Sanderson, program director at the Esperanza Immigrant Rights Project.

This farce is over. Start sending them home!!!
No, it is not the “feds” putting the children at risk. It is obama, himself and no one else. He will be responsible for the murder and sex trade of thousands of these children.
Send. Them. Back..
The Feds have carefully weighed the “risks and benefits”.
As they see it,
the “children” might be hurt, but there has never
been a better chance to exterminate millions in the
57 states by spreading disease, narcoterrorists,
Islamic terrorists, and sex slave traders.
Do the Feds get a cut? or does it all go to Obama?
And do you think he even gives a flyin’ flip about these children? In January he had his regime put out ads to hire 65,000 federal employees to ‘escort’ unaccompanied minors arriving at the borders! He had his hench-fiends arrange for these children to be exploited.
It isn’t the feds who are putting ‘’kids’’ at risk. It’s the governments in the country these hordes are running from that are putting them at risk.
Wait til half of the children go missing... and others wash up on the shores of rivers.
Lucky for Obama the New York Times covers for his horrors... You would think ‘dead children’ would bother them... but I guess only if they can pin it on Republicans.
In all of the attention being paid to the illegal alien children we need to be reminded that it has not only been illegal alien children who have been hurt by this invasion. Here is a story that happened in 2006. Jordin Paulder was a 9 year old boy who was murdered by an illegal alien.
