Exclusive: US officials likely lost track of nearly 6,000 unaccompanied migrant kids

Source: McClatchy

WASHINGTON
The Trump administration has likely lost track of nearly 6,000 unaccompanied migrant children, thousands more than lawmakers were alerted to last month, according to a McClatchy review of federal data.

Federal officials acknowledged last month that nearly 1,500 unaccompanied minors arrived on the southern border alone without their parents and were placed with sponsors who did not keep in touch with federal officials, but those numbers were only a snapshot of a three- month period during the last fiscal year.

“There is a lot more,” said a field specialist who worked in the Office of Refugee Resettlement until earlier this year and was tasked with reaching out to sponsors and children to check on their well-being. “You can bet that the numbers are higher. It doesn’t really give you a real picture.”

20. They are doing the same with the kids as they do with the money.


You know money launderers move money from one bank to a LLC ( that they have created) and from there to another bank, another LLC or 2-3 in a row.

They are moving the kids the same way,,from state to state to facility etc. without any records.

You don't do that much moving, go to all that trouble, unless there is a large payoff at the end.

It's gonna take awhile to uncover all this, unless we get whistlblowers.

And time is something the the kids cannot afford.

28. I think (hope) most are simply afraid of the goverment keeping tabs on them

 

Of course it's probable at least some ended up in the hands of sex traffickers. One is too many. Either way, we need a serious investigation, but it will be extremely difficult to get significant co-operation from anyone due to current policy.

29. This was a game plan from the start.

Did quite a bit of Volunteering with a Non Profit in the Eighties. Mostly Family related issues in neighborhoods with extreme poverty. Seen the dis-pare,heard the dis-pare in the voices,personally have so much respect for all those Social Workers who are just buried with clients. And yes,kids get lost in the system and usually it is the result of a clerical error.

What we are seeing is this,these Clerical Errors are by design to produce fodder for Political Purposes.

Please do not for get what happened in Chile and Argentina decades ago.

We have some very sickco advisors around Trump. And these same advisors are being backed up in the Alt Right Media by certain Churches. They could give a rat's ass about Brown Skinned People.

18. Ya know, when Mr. dixie asked that when we first heard the 1500 number..


I told him he had a very dark mind. He agreed.

That musta been just a couple of days before the kidnappings/concentration camp/for profit adoption agencies news all tumbled out in the past 10daysor so.

Had to go apologize to him.

5. Lost track of or their sponsors don't want to have anything to do with this corrupt government?

If I took in an unaccompanied minor, there is no way in hell I would tell the Trump administration where that kid was. Try to find his or her parents or other relatives? Hell, yes. Provide for the child's every need, absolutely. Nurture with affection, you bet. Let our government know how to find him or her. Uh uh.

10. Well, not under this administration

but certainly in the future, we will be looking at 6000+ new American citizens. It is only the right thing to do - after screwing them over. Oh, I forgot to mention all the money that these kids and their lawyers will get - when they file suit and win against the POS Trump administration.

37. These are the next generation of DACA kids

Fifteen years from now they will be the kids who were brought here from no fault of their own who know no country but the US.

Is there a solution to this? Parents sending their kids to the US with coyotes is very unsafe but it seems to be the way to beat the US immigration system.

Any solutions out there?

11. There should be

immediate DNA testing of all separated family members, with results put into a database to allow for reunification.

Just as was done in Argentina for their Disappeared.

Molecular geneticists should join lawyers on the frontlines of helping these families. Don't leave it to the dumpsters to obfuscate results or lose samples.

31. So the solution to harming innocent children is to harm more innocent children?

Yeah, no thanks. It's not their fault that he's their grandfather, and they have no ability to make him change how he behaves. Punishing a child for the sins of the father (or grandfather) is neither right nor just.

Seems a bit half-baked to take an obviously visceral reaction as a de facto statement of solution.

But I get it... it's often difficult to practice self-righteousness unless we practice literalism first.

26. So basically the Pizza Hut child trafficking thing was true, except the Trump admin is doing it.

State-sponsored human trafficking with invisible consumers of abducted children. Run by the US Justice Department.



If there's a more twisted, f'd-up way to run a country I don't know what it is.
