Make no mistake, this issue is the results of OBAMA'S policies. HHS has inherited a problem that's been occurring for years. I wrote about it 4 YEARS AGO and NO ONE expressed any outrage during the last administration.
"Over a period of four months in 2014, however, HHS allegedly placed a number of UACs in the hands of a ring of human traffickers who forced them to work on egg farms in and around Marion, Ohio, leading to a federal criminal

2014--- #WhereWereTheLiberals
"Specifically, the files reveal that, from June through September 2014, HHS placed a number with alleged distant relatives or family friends—including one of the defendants in the criminal case—without taking sufficient steps to ensure that the
placements would be safe..."
"HHS failed to run background checks on the adults in the sponsors’ households as well as secondary caregivers, failed to visit any of the sponsors’ homes; and failed to realize that a group of sponsors was accumulating multiple unrelated children."
"In August 2014, HHS permitted a sponsor to block a child-welfare case worker from visiting with one of the victims, even after the case
worker discovered the child was not living at the address on file with HHS..."

2014-- #WhereWereTheLiberals
"The Subcommittee sought to determine whether the Marion placements were
caused by a tragic series of missteps or more systemic deficiencies in HHS’s UAC
placement process. Based on that investigation, the Subcommittee concludes that HHS’s policies and procedures are..."
"inadequate to protect the children in the agency’s care."

"HHS’s process for verifying the alleged relationship between a
UAC and an individual other than a parent, guardian, or close family member is unreliable and vulnerable to abuse."

"HHS is unable to detect when a sponsor or group of related
sponsors is seeking custody of multiple unrelated children."

"HHS has failed to conduct adequate background checks."

"HHS does not adequately conduct home studies."

"After a child’s release to a sponsor, HHS allows sponsors to refuse
post-release services offered to the child—and even to bar contact between the child and an HHS care provider attempting to provide those services."

"Many UACs fail to appear at immigration proceedings."
In 2008, about 8,000 UACs came to the US. In 2014, it was 69,000.

"The causes of the surge of UACs are disputed, but all stakeholders, including HHS, agree that one reason UACs come to this country is that they are “brought into the United States by human trafficking rings.”
So again I have to ask... Why NOW the sudden outrage on behalf of the Left? #WhereWereTheLiberals
It is worth noting that during the Obama administration, 76% of Unaccompanied Minors (UACs) who came into the US illegally were boys ages 13-17. The Left wants you to envision helpless little babies lost in the US but that is pure propaganda.
Here's Senator @tedcruz calling for #HHS to take better care of UAC's way back in APRIL 2015.…
