Bombshell documents expose sexual abuse of unaccompanied migrant children

The Biden administration’s Department of Health and Human Services has released documents revealing 33 incidents of alleged sexual abuse involving unaccompanied migrant children in just over a month.

The records, obtained by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, cover the period from Jan. 21 to Feb. 26 of this year — a time when migrants were flooding the southern border following President Joe Biden’s inauguration.

The 33 allegations were listed in an Office of Refugee Resettlement spreadsheet titled “Unaccompanied Children Program Sexual Abuse Allegations.”

“These incidents seemed to be tied to ‘voluntary agencies’ (VOLAGs), which are contractors for the federal government,” Judicial Watch said in a news release this week.

“Ten of the allegations of sexual abuse were made against staff and ‘non-staff’ members. Twenty-one incidents of children sexually assaulting other children while in government contracted care facilities were reported,” the release added. 

Many observers have been voicing concerns over allegations of sexual abuse at facilities for unaccompanied minors for months. In April, Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott even called on Biden to close one facility in Texas, the Freeman Expo Center.

“In short, this facility is a health and safety nightmare. The Biden administration is now presiding over the abuse of children,” Abbott said at the time, according to Fox News.

“The Biden administration caused this crisis and has repeatedly failed to address it,” he added. “The administration failed to plan for the influx of children that they invited to come. Now they face allegations of despicable child abuse and neglect.”

In addition to allegations of sexual abuse, documents released by HHS and posted by Judicial Watch provided details of alleged physical abuse.

In one instance, a minor at the Baptist Children and Family services shelter in Texas was reported by a peer as having been bunched in the rib cage by his roommate while he was lying down. The boy did not want to talk about the alleged assault, however, and the incident does not appear to have been investigated or reported to law enforcement, according to the HHS documents.

“These documents show that not only are there shocking reports of sexual abuse occurring in shelters for unaccompanied children, but that there is violence amongst the UACs themselves,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement.

“It is no surprise that Biden administration’s enabling of human trafficking has resulted in violence and the abuse of children,” he added.
