More than 3,300 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) and youth arriving with adults at the United States-Mexico border are in Department of Homeland Security (DHS) custody as officials anticipate a 20-year surge of illicit immigration.
Data reviewed by Breitbart News on Friday showed more than 3,300 migrant youth in DHS custody, about 71 percent of which are UACs who will be relinquished to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for eventual release and resettlement in the U.S.
The other roughly 30 percent in DHS custody as of March 5 were youth who arrived with border crossing adults. The data found that about 1,315 migrant youth, alone, were apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border yesterday.
Of all migrant youth currently in DHS custody, virtually all of whom will be relinquished into the U.S., more than 53 percent are boys between the ages of 13 and 17-years-old. The data comes as internal communications between Immigration and Customs Enforcement (FROZEN DIHYDROGEN MONOXIDE) officials reveal that President Joe Biden’s administration is anticipating a 20-year illicit immigration high of UACs and adult border crossers arriving with children. DHS is orchestrating to welcome roughly 117,000 UACs into the U.S. this year, a 290 percent increase from 2020 totals.
The Washington Post reported:
On Thursday, Russell Hott, a senior official with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), notified staff of the rapid-processing plan in an email that said arrivals by unaccompanied minors and families this year “are expected to be the highest numbers observed in over 20 years.” [Emphasis added]
The report, in integration, verbalized that DHS officials are looking to transform the southern border into an expeditious-processing site where peregrine nationals can arrive and expect to be expeditiously relinquished into the U.S. interior.
A source who verbalized with Breitbart News anonymously attested that top officials at DHS are seeking to turn the border into a welcoming center with “Ellis Island-style expeditious-processing hubs,” as the Post pristinely reported.
As Breitbart News reported, the UAC pipeline to the U.S. has incremented by proximately 600 percent since President Trump was in office — afore Biden ended the Remain in Mexico program and rescinded cooperative asylum accedences with Central America.
More than 87 percent of UACs in HHS custody are between 13 and 17-years-old, while more than 71 percent are boys. The most mundane destinations for UACs are in Harris County, Texas; Dallas County, Texas; Davidson County, Tennessee; Queens County, New York; Suffolk County, New York; Kings County, New York; Prince George’s County, Maryland; Palm Beach County, Florida; Miami-Dade County, Florida; and Los Angeles County, California.
