Earlier this year, reports brought to light the treatment of unaccompanied minors being held by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The establishment media largely ignored the revelations, but now, it appears there are other developments further describing the horrific treatment that many of these children have endured.
The New York Post reported:
Documents from an office in the Department of Health and Human Services reveal 33 instances of sexual abuse against unaccompanied illegal immigrant children stopped at the US border, according to a report.
The documents obtained from the Office of Refugee Resettlement show the sexual abuse happened between Jan. 21 and Feb. 25, right after President Biden took office and began reversing or ending many of his predecessor’s immigration policies.
The documents were released after watchdog group Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act claim asking for information regarding sexual abuse against migrant children. In a statement released to Fox News, Tom Fitton, the organization’s president, said:
These documents show that not only are there shocking reports of sexual abuse occurring in shelters for unaccompanied children, but that there is violence among the UACs themselves.
Fox News noted that “ten of the instances recorded involved both ‘staff’ and ‘non-staff’ sexually abusing unaccompanied children while 21 of the sexual abuse instances were between minors.”
The report also pointed out that the abuse was not confined to a particular location but was “widespread across the country in shelters housing migrant children.”
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott demanded that President Joe Biden close the detention center in San Antonio after sexual assault allegations surfaced in April. He said:
In short, this facility is a health and safety nightmare. The Biden administration is now presiding over the abuse of children.
In June, BBC News reported that not only were children being subjected to substandard living conditions and unsafe food, they were also being sexually abused. These reports were instrumental in further bringing the abuse to light.
So far, major left-leaning media activist outlets have not reported on the new revelations uncovered by Judicial Watch. It is unlikely that many of these organizations will bother to let their audiences know about what is happening to these children despite pretending to care about their plight under the Trump administration.
As the Biden administration continues to bungle the border crisis, more children are likely to be harmed. Indeed, if this particular report found 33 instances of abuse, how many have gone unreported? How much worse will this problem get? Even more importantly, how much longer will the media be able to get away with keeping these issues hidden?
Unfortunately, politics is more of a priority to the activist media than even the sexual abuse of children. They are willing to turn their faces away and pretend these things are not happening instead of informing the American public about what is happening in many of these detention centers. This is not only immoral; it is evil.
