[Ed. – It’s not better for children to be left to the tender mercies of the adults in these fake families. The problem is too real and frequent to simply ignore it.]
Acting Commissioner of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Mark Morgan told a Senate committee on Tuesday that 5,800 “fake families” have been discovered trying to enter the U.S. illegally this year.
“Our laws prevent us from holding people more than 20 days and because we can’t get the information we’re probably releasing them even sooner than that in many cases, correct?” Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) asked Morgan during a Senate Homeland Security hearing on the border crisis. …
Johnson said releasing undocumented migrant families into the general public without thorough vetting presents a “real danger” to public safety but also to the migrants themselves.
“Especially with the amount of fake families that we are uncovering every single day,” Morgan said.
