Biden Administration Lost Track of 5,000 Migrant Children, Possibly Sold into Child Sex Trafficking
Thousands of unaccompanied children who illegally crossed the border are now unaccounted for after being carelessly released by the Biden regime to poorly vetted sponsors.
According to a Freedom of Information Act request that was submitted by Axios, The federal government has inexplicably lost contact with around 5,000 out of almost 15,000 children who were released into the interior of the US between January and May.
Efforts to reach them by phone have gone unanswered.
Additionally, the administration has not even attempted to make contact with more than half of the total number of kids that have been released to sponsors through those first five months. HHS had released 32,000 children and teens, but only attempted fewer than 15,000 check-up calls.
The agency has declined to comment on if they are making all of the required check up calls.
The revelations are just the latest example of the Biden Regime’s negligence, especially when it comes to the most vulnerable. They have essentially dropped some of these kids directly into the rampant child trafficking industry surrounding the border.
Concerns for the children’s safety are growing, the federal government has already opened an investigation into if dozens of migrant children were released to labor traffickers, according to Bloomberg Law.
The whole situation is a mess.
Officials have made efforts to contact them, but have been unable to reach either the children or their sponsors. An HHS spokesperson said its because many of the unvetted sponsors don’t want to be found.
