Biden Regime under Investigation for Exploitation of Migrant Children

(Headline USA) The Biden administration is under investigation for its handling of migrant children along the southern border with policies that have exposed children to dangerous and deadly conditions.

Lawmakers are reportedly looking into allegations that Biden’s Health and Human Services Department, Homeland Security Department and the Department of Labor have allowed migrant children to fall into the hands of human smugglers and live in horrific conditions, according to the Washington Examiner. The investigation is being led by Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., who chairs the House Education and Workforce Committee.

“I’m disturbed by reports that children are being exploited after they are released from federal custody,” Foxx said in a statement. “Because of President Biden’s open border policies, unaccompanied migrant children are being brought illegally into the United States. As a result, the federal government assumes the custody and care of these children after they are apprehended at the border.”

Foxx specifically took aim at HHS for allegedly failing to properly vet sponsors for migrant children. 

Under the current rules, unaccompanied migrant children are placed into the custody of HHS, which then finds for them sponsors in the interior of the U.S. However, there have been numerous reports of sex traffickers gaining custody of migrant children after they’ve been released from HHS custody.

“The Department of Health and Human Services has a duty to vet the sponsors who are charged with taking care of these children after they leave federal care, but it has egregiously failed in this endeavor,” Foxx said. “This is morally reprehensible and another glaring example of the Biden administration’s lack of operational control at the southern border.”

Another recent report found that migrant children are being recruited into the black labor market. 

“In Los Angeles, children stitch ‘Made in America’ tags into J. Crew shirts,” the New York Times reported recently. “They bake dinner rolls sold at Walmart and Target, process milk used in Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and help debone chicken sold at Whole Foods,” the report stated. “As recently as the fall, middle-schoolers made Fruit of the Loom socks in Alabama. In Michigan, children make auto parts used by Ford and General Motors.”
