An outfit called Judicial Watch released a bunch of government reports July 10.

Judicial Watch does this all they time. They file Freedom of Information Act requests and force the government to release public information.

This particular report, from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, revealed that unaccompanied alien children admitted to this country included murderers, rapists, drug smugglers, prostitutes and human traffickers.

The documents – all 224 pages of them – came from the HHS’s Administration for Children and Families as reported to the Office of Refugee Resettlement. The documents summarized 1,000 “Significant Incident Reports” and noted there were 24,680 Significant Incident Reports filed with the Office of Refugee Resettlement in a single year.

Summaries of incident reports were organized into four general categories:

• UACs admitting to murder, belonging to MS-13, threatening others with rape, admitting to drug smuggling, molesting other UACs and seriously assaulting other UACs or staff.

• UACs who were raped and/or molested en route to the United States or in the United States.

• U.S. government contractors and employees allegedly assaulting or having sexual relationships with UACs.

• Other incidents, crimes, abuse and self-harm.

Here are some examples, straight from the HHS:

• A male UAC placed at a Baptist Child and Family Services shelter in Fairfield, Calif., admitted that he was “forced to kill” while working for the Gulf Cartel in Mexico.

• A male UAC being cared for at the Heartland International Children’s Center Facility reported that he had been an MS-13 gang member for a year before coming to the U.S.

• A male UAC cared for at the Heartland International Committee of the Red Cross facility reported to staff that he had been “made to” kill three people by a drug cartel.

• A male UAC housed at the KidsPeace shelter in Bethlehem, Pa., reportedly told another male UAC there: “I am a rapist. I am going to rape you.”

• A UAC at Morrison Child and Family Services Center – Paso Secure in Portland, Ore., informed a Youth Care Worker there that “all of the kids here at Paso are snorting white pills” that “some residents had brought the pills into the facility” and “all the residents are snorting the white pills and at all the times of the day.”

• A male UAC in the care of Heartland ICRC reported that he was an MS-13 gang member who had been selling drugs. He told social workers that “the reason the gang members made the kids use drugs was to get them addicted.”

• A female UAC at the Sandy Pines facility in Jupiter, Fla., attacked a staff member with a chair after being told to stop inappropriate sexual behavior toward another female UAC. After being restrained, she threatened to stab an unidentified person with a knife she kept in her room. The report concludes by saying, “UAC will continue to work on identifying and implementing coping skills to manage her mood.”

• A male UAC at a Baptist Child and Family Services shelter in Baytown, Texas, said he’d worked as a human smuggler, charging $6,000 to $8,000 per person he crossed into the United States.

• A female UAC at the BCFS shelter in Lackland AFB was alleged by other UACs to be the daughter of a coyote (human smuggler) and reportedly was passing information to her father via telephone from the shelter.

• A male UAC claimed a female teacher at Southwest Key shelter in Phoenix “seductively” massaged his leg, lay in his bed with him and exposed her genital area to him.

• A female UAC at a Boystown shelter claimed she had been raped by English-speaking men after being taken into custody by U.S. immigration officials and being transported to a shelter.

• A female UAC claimed that while at a Southwest Key shelter in Ventura County, Calif., she and a group of other female UACs had been awakened early by staff members, taken outside and “wetted” (a slang term referring to vaginal touching) by staffers who told her it was a “normal activity.”

• A female UAC reported an allegation of abuse by program staff at Sandy Pines, Jupiter, Fla., claiming she had been in a “girlfriend relationship” with a female staff member.

• A female UAC in the Bokenkamp facility reported that an immigration officer put “his hand in between the pants and stomach of another female minor.” She also claimed a few days later that the officer “touched her thigh in an inappropriate manner.”

• A 17-year-old male UAC in the Baptist Family and Children Services, San Antonio, reported he was “in a relationship,” begun while he was a minor, with a 24-year-old staff member.

• A male UAC at the Baptist Family and Children Services Shelter in Fairfield, Texas, told a staff member that when he was residing at the Union County facility (likely in New Jersey), “officers verbally abused the minors and encouraged them to fight whenever there were disagreements.” When a fight would break out, “staff would make bets and provide the ‘winner’ with outside food.”

• A male UAC at Catholic Charities in Houston claimed that his sponsor tried to force him to smoke pot, drink alcohol and snort cocaine

Pretty awful stuff.

I shared 16 examples here. The report summarized 1,000 of them out of a total of 24,680. Surely, a fair number of these significant incident reports likely were without merit.

But where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Certainly this paints a picture of some significant problems with the U.S. immigration system.

By the way, these documents are for an approximate six-month period from May to November 2014, during the Obama administration. They were produced to Judicial Watch after a three-year delay in response to a Nov. 12, 2014, Freedom of Information Act request.

To be fair, Judicial Watch is a decidely conservative activist group, mainly targeting Democrats, but it has gone after Republicans during the Bush years.

“The Obama administration presided over a humanitarian and public safety nightmare in its handling of ‘unaccompanied alien children,’” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

Oddly – or not so oddly, perhaps – you didn’t hear much about this during the Obama administration.
