We heard about sexual and physical abuse in migrant facilities. This is during a one-month period. I’m scared to find out what happened between March and now.
In April, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott demanded Biden close Freeman Coliseum, a San Antonio migrant children facility, over sexual abuse allegations.
Authorities emptied the Freeman Coliseum by the end of May. They said they could not corroborate the claims. Plus, without any of the kids around, it would make it even harder to investigate the abuse.
It seems the allegations might have been true.
Judicial Watch received documents from the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Refugee Resettlement that confirmed unaccompanied migrant kids suffered sexual and physical abuse during a one-month period:
Fox News exclusively obtained 41 pages of documents from watchdog group Judicial Watch revealing 33 instances of “sexual abuse” against unaccompanied minors tied to voluntary agencies contracting with the federal government.
The sexual abuse incidents all occurred during a one-month period between Jan. 21 and Feb. 25 of this year – during the time President Biden dismantled his predecessor’s immigration policies.
“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,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement to Fox News.
“It is no surprise that Biden administration’s enabling of human trafficking has resulted in violence and the abuse of children,” Fitton continued.
The documents included one incident in San Antonio, but not the Freeman Coliseum.
From Fox News:
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. Two sexual abuse reports were filed between an unaccompanied child and “other.”
The sexual abuse was widespread across the country in shelters housing migrant children who crossed the border alone, and illustrates a dark reality facing migrant children as the border crisis rages on.
HHS withheld details on the identities of the alleged perpetrators and victims in the reports and did not provide Judicial Watch with incident reports on the abuse.
In Baytown, TX, a minor informed a clinician that a minor roommate punched his roommate while they lied down in a bed. The minor punched the roommate in the rib cage six times.
A minor in Washington claimed her foster parents hit her when she got “really mad.” She accused the foster father of squeezing hr arms “really hard” when he tried to restrain her.DONATE
