An illegal alien has admitted that he bought a six-month-old baby in Guatemala to use as cover to sneak into the US.A., according to the federal government.
The revelation is just the latest evidence that South and Central American children are being bought, sold, stolen, and “rented” over and over again to illegals trying to force their way into our country. Some of these babies as young as a few months and as old as five or six have been through the U.S. border over and over again after being sent back for some other illegals to pretend to be their parent.
This is the sort of child abuse Democrats are helping to foster by calling for open borders and an end to U.S. immigration policies. The more illegals who hear that a major U.S. political party is pressuring for open borders, the more that take the dangerous trip to get here.
According to officials, children are being “rented” by these criminal illegals as well as bought and sold like commodities, the Epoch Times reported.
“We’ve had indications … that it could cost anywhere from a few hundred—or even in some cases, less than $100—up to $1,000 or more,” said Kevin McAleenan, acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), during a congressional hearing on July 18.
McAleenan added that one illegal told U.S. authorities that he bought a baby for $80 in Guatemala. The Honduran native admitted to the scheme when DNA tests found that the baby he claimed was his own was not related.
“We’ve seen all manner of smuggling organizations communicating to potential customers and to those crossing the border how to bring a child with them to be allowed to stay in the United States,” McAleenan added. “They’ve been active in advertising, literally on Facebook and on the radio in Central America.”
In one eight-week stretch ending last month, HSI uncovered 5,500 fake “families” that were busted by DNA evidence.
McAleenan said agents have uncovered 921 fake documents, and 615 individuals have been prosecuted for trafficking or smuggling a child.
“That tells me that we might be scratching the surface of this problem and the number of children being put at risk might be even higher,” he said.
“Everybody knows that if they bring a child, they’ll be allowed to stay in the United States—they call it a ‘passport for migration.’ I heard that directly from a gentleman from Huehuetenango, the westernmost province of Guatemala.”
This is the sort of child abuse that liberals apparently don’t care about.
And have you heard the media asking Democrats why they have ignored all this?
