Biden Resettles Over 146,000 Border Crossers Across U.S. in First Year; Biden Administration Lost — Yes, Lost — Nearly 20,000 Migrant Children

Biden Resettles Over 146,000 Border Crossers Across U.S. in First Year​:
In his first year in office, President Joe Biden resettled more than 146,000 young border crossers across the United States — a foreign population more than twice the size of Portland, Maine and larger than Charleston, South Carolina.
The data comes from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) after Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) inquired about the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) program where thousands of young border crossers arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border and are subsequently resettled in American communities with American taxpayer money.
From January 20, 2021, to February 7, 2022, the Biden administration has resettled 146,248 young border crossers with sponsors — nearly 20,000 of which HHS has lost track of.
While about 128,000 of those young border crossers have been resettled with either parents, siblings, cousins, aunts, or uncles, HHS officials said nearly 18,000 have been placed with sponsors that are unrelated to them or are distant relatives.
Stephen Miller, head of America First Legal and a senior advisor to former President Trump, said a number of the “major takeaways” from the HHS data include the agency’s state goal of permanently resettling young border crossers in American communities and the failure to verify whether sponsors are illegal aliens, themselves. --->READ MORE HERE
Biden Administration Lost — Yes, Lost — Nearly 20,000 Migrant Children:
The alien minors released since the inauguration would be the 18th largest U.S. school district, costing local taxpayers more than $4.6 billion per year
In September, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) asked the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for information on unaccompanied alien children (UACs) — alien minors who entered illegally and who have been released to sponsors in this country. Biggs tweeted out the response this week. The big takeaways: The Biden administration has lost track of nearly 20,000 kids, and the more than 146,000 children in total it has released would be the 18th largest school district in the United States — at an added cost to local taxpayers of $4.6 billion annually.
HHS Role in the Placement of Unaccompanied Alien Children. By way of background, prior to the creation of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the former Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) had jurisdiction over the detention and release of unaccompanied alien children.
Immigrants’ rights advocates long complained about INS’s detention of children, and so when DHS was created in the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (HSA), that bill was amended by House Democrats to give the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) within HHS jurisdiction over the unaccompanied children that DHS apprehended.
That role was expanded in the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 (TVPRA). As I have explained in the past, the TVPRA divided UACs based on nationality, with Mexican and Canadian children treated differently than all other alien children.
Under the TVPRA, DHS can quickly return Mexican and Canadian children if they have no fear of return and have not been trafficked. --->READ MORE HERE
