41,000 Unaccompanied Children Apprehended at U.S. Border in Last Few Months

Warner Todd Huston

It is an invasion by steps. The U.S. government has announced that illegals have sent 41,000 of their children on the dangerous to try and sneak into the U.S.A.

Why are all these kids trying to sneak across our border without any adults at all with them? It is an invasion by steps.

The idea is, the kids get here, then they look at Americans with big, tear-filled, rounds eyes and plead for the U.S. to allow their parents to come here to care for them.

So, if the kids get in, they are banking that the government will allow 45 other relatives to come here to care for them.

As Breitbart News reports:

Richard Hudson, acting chief of Law Enforcement Operations Directorate with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), said at a hearing on Thursday that, in recent months, agents have apprehended 41,000 children without parents or guardians and encountered as many as a quarter of a million since 2014 at the U.S. border with Mexico.
“Between Oct. 1, 2017, and July 31, 2018, more than 41,000 UACs have been apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol,” Hudson said, noting that 7,000 of those were deemed inadmissible at ports of entry.

“Since 2014, when we saw the first surge of UACs, CBP has encountered nearly 250,000 UAC’s along the southwest border,” Hudson said.

“These children arrive at our border after a difficult and dangerous journey, and many have been subjected to abuse at the hands of human traffickers, criminals, and opportunists,” Hudson said.

“The men and women of CBP treat each of these children with the utmost professionalism and compassion,” Hudson said. “…and work to ensure their welfare while they are in our custody.”

The hearing focused on how UACs taken into federal custody can be protected from human trafficking and other criminal enterprises when released to family or sponsors in U.S. communities.

In truth, these so-called parents in Central America and Mexico don’t deserve to be called parents. After all, they are sending their precious little kids all alone through the criminal-infested territory of Mexico where these kids are beaten, robbed, raped and often even forced into slavery before they get to our border.

If you claim to love your children, you would never put them in such danger.
