Biden Admin Failed To Vet Adults Housing Migrant Children, Federal Watchdog Says | Eastern North Carolina Now

    The Biden administration failed to properly vet and monitor adults in homes where they placed migrant children in 2021, a federal watchdog has found.

    Basic required checks like criminal background checks were not performed on some adults who ended up housing children, according to a report released Thursday by the Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) inspector general's office.

    In just March and April of 2021, HHS placed 16,790 children with adults.

    The federal watchdog looked at the case files of 342 of those migrant children, just a small subset of the many thousands of children who showed up at the border in the previous months. In 16% of the cases the watchdog looked at, HHS failed to prove it had performed any basic safety checks like background or address checks. Also, in more than a third of the cases reviewed by the inspector general, HHS could not produce legible documentation for the adults. This means their IDs had issues like missing holograms or blurry images, raising concerns about them being forged.

    "We found that children's case files and sponsor records were not always updated with important documentation and information," said Haley Lubeck, an analyst for the inspector general's office.

    In about a fifth of the cases reviewed, HHS did not check on the children it had placed in a timely manner, sometimes for months. The HHS responded to the report by saying most of the issues it cited are things the department is already addressing.

    "The overwhelming majority of findings and recommendations address records management and documentation issues that (the agency) has already improved through training, monitoring, technology, and evaluation," HHS spokesman Jeff Nesbit said.

    Last year, HHS was criticized for releasing migrant children too quickly, resulting in some of them being exploited for child labor. Dozens of migrant children, some as young as 12, said they were working overnight or at dangerous jobs for companies in the U.S., an investigation from The New York Times reported in February 2023.


    Meanwhile, the Biden administration is dealing with an ongoing crisis at the southern border, with hundreds of thousands of migrants illegally crossing into the country every month. In December, authorities encountered 302,000 migrants at the border, the highest monthly total on record and the first time the total has ever topped 300,000. Overall last year, 2.5 million migrants were apprehended crossing or trying to cross the southern border, according to the CBP. However, that does not include the more than 96,000 "known gotaways," migrants who were detected but not caught, or the unknown gotaways.

    President Biden's approval rating on immigration hit an all-time low of 32% last month, and his overall approval rating remains low as well.

Understanding that there are two firm positions concerning the Open Border Crises, but many realties regarding its current, and, or projected real impacts to the functioning, sustainability of this Constitutional Republic: What position below best represents what you know to be true regarding this impactful policy?
  The United States' must continue the Executive initiative of Open Borders until a Democratic Congress can codify full Demographic Inclusion by keeping the Biden /Harris Open Borders policy in place.
  Our United States' borders are sovereign just as are our self-governed citizens, where borders must be maintained, monitored and defended, which is the position of core Republicans.
  I am in favor of Open Borders to make my America more of a global community; however, the federal government must now fix problems that "Red State" governors have caused in our cities.
  I do NOT favor the Democratic Socialists' disruption of the cultural fabric of my Representative Republic, and there will be Treasonous Hell to Pay when the certain calamity begins in earnest.

Considering what real news is available for all to witness, and in great specificity, should one pursue what is true outside of the channeled realm of the corrupt corporate /legacy media, and: Is Institutionalized Corruption real, and is it a hindrance to sustaining our Constitutional Republic now, and for future generations of American citizens?
  Not sure

Should the Institutionalized Corruption of the Biden /Harris Administration, in this separate instance the Open Border Policy of our Sovereign Southern Border, be not only tolerated, but sanctioned by the raising of local spending by local politicians to pay for these now visible and known effects of rampant, and out-of-control Illegal Immigration?
  Yes, it is a kind thing to do, and a way that our county, our state can aid in this tremendous effort toward local federal foreign aid; and now, thankfully, in great abundance.
  No, our Constitutional Republic WILL NOT continue to exist, as our United States of America, if we do not control our sovereign borders, to protect our citizens, to keep them solvent and safe.
  I only consider what is topical and popular since my friends, too, only care to do the same.

Considering the deep morass of complete incompetence at the Federal level, in the executive branch of our self-governed People, unarguably the worst in modern times; if certain changes could be made by Impeachment of those most qualified: Who would be your best choice because of abject Corruption, incompetence, or both?
  Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas
  Attorney General Merrick Garland
  President Joseph R. Biden
  Are you a MAGA Extremist, and do not know any better? These are our best of days, not our worst.

What if Mr. Trump was president with the Obama Cages still in force, but multiplied under the Idiot President, with over 85,000 children lost in this nation of so many Good People, probably sold into sexual bondage by the evil people to other bad people?

How would the Non Patriot Propagandist Media be reporting this human tragedy if it were not completely created by this Democratic Socialist paradigm of forced Open Borders?

Leftists, at their core, are: Hyperbolic hypocrites, 'full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.'
