Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection launched a program in April to uncover deception among migrants saying they are family units.
The program so far has identified 238 fraudulent families, 50 adults falsely posing as minors, and hundreds of documents made in an attempt to support their claims. It has helped save migrant children being used by human smugglers and criminal organizations using them for immigration fraud.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in the El Paso area have identified 238 fraudulent families, 50 adults falsely claiming to be minors, and have seized hundreds of documents attempting to support these migrants’ claims, according to an ICE statement released Thursday.
ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations, in conjunction with CBP and Border Patrol officials, in April launched the Family Fraud Initiative in El Paso with the goal of identifying “individuals fraudulently presenting themselves as families when making an asylum claim in order to be released into the United States.”
The program identified an enormous amount of fraud by illegal migrants seemingly hoping to take advantage of U.S. immigration laws, and ultimately resulted in more than 350 people being federal prosecuted for making false statements, human smuggling, illegal re-entry into the U.S. after being deported, conspiracy and other crimes.

The left whine and cry about “kids in cages” and how horrible ICE is but they really care nothing for the children being used erroneously and trafficked.
They’re passing kids to different families so they can get into the country. If they’re successful they then abandon the kids. They’re guilty of at least child abuse. Thank you ICE for doing your job.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
