Skip to comments.Obama administration placed children with human traffickers, report says (from Jan, 2016)

The Obama administration failed to protect thousands of Central American children who have flooded across the U.S. border since 2011, leaving them vulnerable to traffickers and to abuses at the hands of government-approved caretakers, a Senate investigation has found.
The Office of Refugee Resettlement, an agency of the Department of Health and Human Services, failed to do proper background checks of adults who claimed the children, allowed sponsors to take custody of multiple unrelated children, and regularly placed children in homes without visiting the locations, according to a 56-page investigative report released Thursday.
And once the children left federally funded shelters, the report said, the agency permitted their adult sponsors to prevent caseworkers from providing them post-release services.
Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) initiated the six-month investigation after several Guatemalan teens were found in a dilapidated trailer park near Marion, Ohio, where they were being held captive by traffickers and forced to work at a local egg farm. The boys were among more than 125,000 unaccompanied minors who have surged into the United States since 2011, fleeing violence and unrest in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

DIMs are perverts and pervert-lovers after all. Who would have thought???
Yeah but when Democrats did it it was A OK..no protests, no outrage..no media coverage..because when Obama did it everyone was silent because he was the chosen one, could get away with ANYTHING
To find BO’B trafficked children comes as no surprise.
To find this on the pages of WAPO publication is, indeed, very much a surprise. Two years ago, Jan, BO’B still in charge, not yet losing his party to President DJT. Is the ‘reporter’ still alive?
The coverup continues as Trump misspells deliberately.
Obama is just now hearing of this.
He always heard about via the news folks.
Does this mean that the Obama administration was full of Nazis as well...like Joe from MSNBC suggested?
I was watching CNN the other day and even under Trump they were not reporting this side of the story. All they were saying was that the Trump administration was separating children from their parents, without asking whether an actual parent would just scoop up his or her kid and head back to Mexico.
Because CNN and others on the left ADORE Obama..as long as it was Obama doing it it was just fine and dandy. The mistake Trump is making is NOT shipping these roaches BACK..they don’t belong here..shut down the detention centers and SHIP THEM BACK
Oh so the useless GOP had an investigation - that the LSM did not cover and that resulted in, well, nothing. Grr.
Where were all these heart-rending stories of mistreatment in the Los Angeles Times and New York Times during O’bumbles Reign of Error? Diane Feinstein says she never heard of children being kept in cages in 2014, though there were photos showing that practice when King Barack I invited hundreds of thousands of “unaccompanied minors” to ride atop the train from Mexico into Texas.
Democrats lie all the time.
Obama and the Podestas had to get their pizza and hotdogs from somewhere. These were high demand, gourmet meals that must be flown in from other cities.
oh the humanateeeee ping
Gee, i wonder why hildabeast and zero went to burma? I think there should be investigations into all their travels and deals...dealing with the devil incarnate.
Is this headlining CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, and any other Marxist networks and print media tonight?
What the so-called media does can no longer be categorized as "liberal bias."
It goes way beyond that.
