Customs and Border Protection reported at least one case of a child being “recycled.” That’s a child being used more than once in fraudulent cases.
Customs and Border Protection says it happened Wednesday in El Paso when the agent processing the child, and the adult they crossed the border with, had several inconsistencies in their story. That lead investigators to believe the child and the adult were not related. Investigators say agents were able to prove that the same minor had been recycled at least twice.

IOW: Illegal immigrants are recycling children back & forth across the border to pose as children of family units seeking asylum.
Officials with the U.S. Border Patrol said they found a “recycled” migrant child while family groups in custody were being processed on Wednesday.
Agents said they found a family group with several inconsistencies that led agents to suspect that the child and alleged parent were not related.
Officials were able to get enough evidence to determine that the child had been “recycled” in at least two prior instances. More
Thanks, Dems, for creating this danger for kids.

The practice of Cartels recycling children for their own nefarious purposes is a real human rights crisis on our border. Pelosi isn’t lifting a finger to help these poor children because it would mean admitting she was completely wrong.
According to the Democrat Party, there is no crisis on the border.
This is the child that was rescued.
Dozens and dozens more out there.
