How the Biden Border Crisis Hurts Children
Biden’s border crisis “victimizes everyone involved,” including unaccompanied minors, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton noted Friday. As Fitton further explained, the administration’s failure to enforce the security at our border hasn’t only hurt our national sovereignty, and by extension, the rights of millions of Americans; it has contributed to what might appear to be a true humanitarian crisis involving the lives of thousands of unaccompanied, often smuggled children. In response to three recent reports of child abuse and neglect at the Freeman Coliseum in Texas, Judicial Watch has sued the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for records about the abuse of children at U.S. border facilities.
As Fitton stated:
“We are concerned that the surge of migrants seeking to take advantage of the Biden administration’s lax immigration policies has resulted in the foreseeable abuse of children, as overwhelmed federal authorities are ill-equipped to handle the huge number of children crossing the border. The unprecedented secrecy and censorship surrounding these sites compounds the problem and limits accountability. Our lawsuit aims to expose the full truth about this particularly troubling consequence of the Biden administration’s lawlessness on immigration.”
You may recall that the administration kept the media and Members of Congress from reporting on the state of the border crisis. Regardless of who the Biden administration wishes to allow at the border, Judicial Watch is acting to make sure our laws are upheld. As Fitton reminded his viewers, “those that want open borders … may not acknowledge this, but it results in human rights abuses. Lawlessness victimizes, in the area of immigration, those who are citizens and illegal aliens.” The only way to get answers is to keep pushing, Fitton concluded. “I want more lawsuits, I want more groups challenging government misconduct.”
