HOUSTON, Texas -- President Obama's Health and Human Services (HHS) has responded to the crisis along the Texas-Mexico border by quietly releasing illegal immigrant minors onto U.S. soil. 30,340 illegal immigrant minors have already been released in states around the country--4,829 were released in Texas alone. HHS' Office of Refugee and Resettlement (ORR) recently published additional statistics, showing how many unaccompanied alien children (UAC) were set free in various counties across the country. More were released in Texas' Harris County--in which Houston is located--than any other county in the nation.
