RFK Jr.: Biden Justifies Open Borders as ‘Humanitarian,’ 85K Migrant ‘Children Have Disappeared’

Democrat presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is calling out President Joe Biden for justifying open borders policies as “humanitarian” while an estimated 85,000 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) “have disappeared” after their release into the United States.

President Biden justified his open borders policy as a humanitarian response to the appalling media revelations that the Trump-era Border Patrol had 2,600 “children in cages.” Today there are 12,000 children in cages + 85,000 children have disappeared,” Kennedy wrote on Twitter:

Indeed, the Biden administration has sought to label their lax enforcement of federal law as “safe, orderly, and humane,” even as child has skyrocketed across the U.S. as a result.

Specifically, Kennedy references a New York Times report from earlier this year that unveiled how more than 85,000 UACs released into the U.S. interior from Department of Homeland Security (DHS) custody have been lost in the system after being sent to live with adult sponsors, most of whom are not their biological parents, by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas admitted in March that many of those 85,000 missing UACs have ended up in a growing migrant child labor trafficking pipeline.

The situation of UACs being released to adult sponsors is so dire that the Labor Department Inspector General has opened an investigation into the Biden administration's handling of the issue.

The federal probe was opened after a bombshell report from the Labor Department that found that from October 2022 to July 0f this year, there has been a 44 percent increase in children discovered working U.S. jobs in violation of the law — many of whom are UACs.

In July, for example, 16-year-old Duvan Tomas Perez of Guatemala died as a result of injuries while working at one of Mar-Jac Poultry's meat processing plants in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Perez was a middle school student who arrived in the U.S. six years ago.

Since Biden took office, more than 300,000 UACs have been placed with adult sponsors throughout the U.S., but whistleblowers have warned that HHS is not properly vetting those sponsors and migrant children are ending up in labor trafficking, , and as a result.

HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra, at a hearing last month, could not guarantee that 100 percent of adult sponsors' homes are inspected before a UAC is placed in their care — a requirement for many pet adoption programs, Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-AZ) noted.
