According to a number of documents obtained by government watchdog Judicial Watch, a number of unaccompanied children/minors [UAC] who entered the United States illegally during the Obama administration admitted to committing a number of heinous crimes in their home countries.
"Judicial Watch today released 224 pages of documents containing nearly 1,000 summaries of Significant Incident Reports (SIRs) from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) revealing that “Unaccompanied Alien Children” (UAC) processed during the Obama administration included admitted murderers, rapists, drug smugglers, prostitutes, and human traffickers," the group released in a statement. "The documents, from the HHS Administration for Children and Families reported to the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), are for the approximate six-month period May to November 2014. They were produced to Judicial Watch after a three-year delay in response to a November 12, 2014."
Further, the incident reports show sexual assault of minors during their journey to the United States and inappropriate sexual relationships between government officials and unaccompanied minors.
Judicial Watch breaks down the incident reports, which span 224 pages, into four categories.
UACs admitting to murder, belonging to MS-13, threatening others with rape, admitting to drug smuggling, molesting other UACs and seriously assaulting other UACs or staff;
UACs who were raped and/or molested en route to the United States or in the United States;
U.S. Government contractors and employees allegedly assaulting or having sexual relationships with UACs; and
Other incidents, crimes, abuse and self-harm.
They also detail a number of violent incidents carried out by MS-13 gang members and minors who worked for cartels.
-A male UAC at a BCFS shelter in Fairfield, CA admitted that he was “forced to kill” while working for the Gulf Cartel in Mexico
-A male UAC being cared for at the Heartland International RC Facility reported that he had been an MS-13 gang member for a year before coming to the U.S.
-A male UAC cared for at the Heartland ICRC (International Committee of the Red Cross) facility reported to staff that he had been “made to” kill three people by a drug cartel.
-A male UAC housed at the KidsPeace shelter (apparently a reference to the KidsPeace facility in Bethlehem, PA) reportedly told another male UAC there: “I am a rapist. I am going to rape you.”
-A male UAC at a Baptist Child and Family Services (BCFS) shelter in Baytown, TX said he’d worked as a human smuggler, charging $6,000-$8,000 per person he crossed into the United States
This information is backed up by Townhall reporting from 2014 about MS-13 using detention centers along the southern border with Mexico as recruiting centers for new members.
“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.”
