Posted on 06/19/2018 6:42:43 PM PDT by Mariner
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is exploring the possibility of using DNA tests to verify the parentage of illegal alien adults who attempt to cross the southern border with children, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said in a statement Tuesday after interviewing Sessions on his radio show Washington Watch.
Sessions is talking to congressional members and is hoping for a legislative fix. The AG wants an immigration policy that is just, fair and enforceable. They talked about making sure that these really are the parents of these kids, Perkins said.
He continued, They are looking at how to use DNA tests in the field to verify they are parents and not traffickers. The reality is if American parents put their kids through what these immigrant parents have done to their kids they would be charged with child abuse.
Around 12,000 children are currently in the custody of Health and Human Services after entering the United States. According to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirsten Nielsen, 10,000 of the 12,000 children in the care of HHS arrived in the U.S. as unaccompanied minors.

We need a law that allows Border Patrol to deny entry. Not allow entry then test for the truth.
Yes, do it. All aliens, even legal ones, need to prove their identity and ALL their allegations (e.g., Im Rositas mother)
Excellent - Get their DNA before they join MS-13 ...
Build the Wall. Enforce the border.
Not allow entry then test for the truth.
Yes, but this is NEEDED for those ALREADY HERE.
Trump should do this by EO - screw lawmakers ...
“...We need a law that allows Border Patrol to deny entry. Not allow entry then test for the truth....”
Damned right!!! And let Sessions pay the bill for DNA testing himself. As if illegals are not ALREADY COSTING the tax payers untold billions......this crap is OUT OF CONTROL.
There would need to be a policy for legally adopted children and parents.
“Trump should do this by EO - screw lawmakers ...”
Federal Law Enforcement is already empowered to take DNA from criminals.
And Sessions is criminally charging all caught entering illegally.
Everyone who immigrated from canada like myself, had to go provide blood samples just to get a green card. If we had to put up with this crap, why cant these brats??
Use Ancestry DNA and see how many who claim to be Irish really are.
I was just thinking about this today. The liar left will scream human rights privacy abuse.
DNA can be sequenced from buccal swab samples which is the least intrusive method. It’s a swab of cells on the inside of a cheek.
“There would need to be a policy for legally adopted children and parents.”
Yes, deny them entry too.
Deny entry to all who do not petition for a visa through the US Consulate.
DNA is an excellent idea and I have another one. Allow only those who apply for amnesty at a port of entry or a US Embassy in a foreign country have their claim processed. If you sneak over the border illegally then you lose the right to seek asylum.
That would be have your paperwork or lose the kid and be charged with child trafficking.
Do we need a dna test to put them on a bus?
No way theyll pass this unless done via EO?..if you think the left/media hysterical now, wait until they catch wind of this
Any non-citizen who enters the United States should be DNA tested.
It's expensive! Just send them back.
