U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) reports reveal that nearly 1,000 criminal incidents involving Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) occurred during the Obama administration, Judicial Watch said Tuesday.
“The Obama administration presided over a humanitarian and public-safety nightmare in its handling of ‘unaccompanied alien children,’” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “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.”
The U.S. is currently embroiled in controversy over Trump’s “zero-tolerance” immigration enforcement policy that separated illegal immigrant children from their parents at the border. Administration officials are scrambling to reunite the children with their parents ahead of the initial Tuesday deadline.
Judicial Watch released 224 pages of summaries of Significant Incident Reports (SIRs) revealing that the Obama administration allowed UACs to remain in the country who admitted “to murder, belonging to MS-13, threatening others with rape,” as well as “drug smuggling, molesting other UACs and seriously assaulting other UACs or staff.” – READ MORE
