[Ed. – Standard bureaucratic resume inflation? Or maybe DHS is trying to subtly rebuke Saudi Arabia or something.]
The Department of Health and Human Services is touting its handling of last summer’s massive influx of unaccompanied alien children in an end-of-year report, despite the fact that its own failures worsened the situation.
Nearly 58,000 unaccompanied alien children arrived before the end of fiscal year 2014, almost as many as arrived in the past five years combined, according to the report from HHS’s Office of Refugee Resettlement.
“ORR and its partners worked tirelessly throughout the summer influx, addressing emergent medical issues and implementing protocols to prevent backlogs in placements, to ensure that the children received appropriate medical screening and care,” the report says. …
ORR’s report describes the summer surge as “unanticipated,” but, as NRO previously reported, the government appears to have known of the influx months in advance.
