Hardcore criminals were welcomed into the country even after admitting to capital crimes…
(Michael Barnes, Liberty Headlines) Murderers, rapists, drug smugglers, prostitutes and human traffickers – these were some of the criminal aliens the Obama administration knowingly allowed to enter the United States under the former president’s “unaccompanied alien children” immigration policy.
Newly released documents from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services confirm as much, but even Obama’s harshest illegal immigration critics may not have imagined the full extent of the issue: Hardcore criminals were welcomed into the country even after admitting to capital crimes.
The HHS documents were recently obtained by the conservative legal nonprofit Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act request, which came three years after the organization filed its initial records inquiry.
If not for a substantial illegal immigration policy shift under President Trump, the documents may have never seen the light of day.
The documents include 224 pages of government records containing nearly 1,000 summaries of “significant incident reports” showing that the Obama administration was wholly aware that the alien child “refugees” it was embracing at the southern border included people who admitted to murdering for drug cartels, prostitution and sexual predation.
The significant incident reports also cite incidents of U.S. government contractors and employees allegedly assaulting unaccompanied alien minors.
“The Obama administration presided over a humanitarian and public safety nightmare in its handling of ‘unaccompanied alien children,’” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
“The incident reports also support the Trump administration’s contention that the UAC crisis, which continues, includes murderers, rapists, drug smugglers and human traffickers being routinely allowed into the United States,” Fitton said.
The documents came from the HHS Administration for Children and Families and had been reported to the Office of Refugee Resettlement.
But only six-months of records — May 2014 to November 2014 – were supplied to Judicial Watch.
At least tens of thousands of subsequent unaccompanied minors flooded the border throughout Obama’s remaining time in the White House.
The documents reveal a total of 24,680 incident reports filed in fiscal year 2014.
The 1,000 report summaries relating to murder, prostitution and sexual assault were among those Judicial Watch placed into four general categories meant to organize the huge amount of records.
The categories include:
- Unaccompanied minors who admitted to murder, belonging to MS-13, threatening others with rape, admitting to drug smuggling, molesting other unaccompanied minors or seriously assaulting other children or government staff
- Unaccompanied children who were raped and/or molested en route to the United States or while inside the United States
- U.S. government contractors and employees who allegedly assaulted or had sexual relationships with unaccompanied minors
- Or, other incidents, crimes, abuse and self-harm.
By any measure, details of hundreds upon hundreds of individual cases are shocking.
For example, many alien minors admitted to being MS-13 gang members including one male who was cared for at the Heartland International Committee of the Red Cross shelter.
The unnamed gang member told shelter social workers that “the reason the gang members made the kids use drugs was to get them addicted.”
Another unnamed male at the Heartland ICRC facility admitted to killing three people for a drug cartel.
Another male alien minor housed at the Kids Peace shelter in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania reportedly told a separate male minor, “I am a rapist. I am going to rape you.”
At another facility, a young male admitted to being a human smuggler for the previous two years and was “paid $100-$200 per person that he crossed over” into the U.S.
In Jupiter, Florida, a female alien minor attacked a staff member with a chair after being told to stop inappropriate sexual advances toward other female minors. After being restrained, she threatened to stab an unidentified person with a knife.
A female minor housed at Lackland Air Force Base in Bexar County, Texas, was alleged by other unaccompanied minors to be the daughter of a coyote human smuggler and was reportedly passing information back to her father via telephone from the shelter.
A male alien minor at the Bethany Christian Service Shelter said he was a drug smuggler for a Mexican cartel and made “18 or 19 trips since he started.” He also said that both his parents and his uncle were drug smugglers and used secret storage compartments in vehicles to transport drugs and drug money in and out of the U.S.
