Revealed: Where 37,000 illegal immigrant children have been released to ‘guardians’ across America – and where the feds are hiding tens of thousands more!
- 37,477 illegal immigrant children were handed over to relatives or other ‘guardians’ this year in 50 states, DC, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands
- US government says 66,127 were apprehended so far, leaving tens of thousands languishing in 116 temporary shelters across 16 states
- The Obama administration is stonewalling Freedom Of Information Act requests for information about contracts it issues to run the facilities
- One Texas charity has received more than $280 million this year to house the children, most of them from Central American countries
The federal government has sent more than 37,000 illegal immigrant children to adults in every part of the U.S. who claimed to be their guardians during the first seven months of 2014, data from the Department of Health and Human Services show.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection says more than 66,000 unaccompanied children were apprehended after crossing the border illegally between October 1, 2013 and the end of this August – an 88 per cent increase over the last fiscal year with one month left to go.
HHS released more than 56 per cent of the children to family members in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands between January and July, according to information the agency sent MailOnline and shown in a map below.
In addition to the 116 shelters housing the rest, an estimated 28,000 kids, the feds have also proposed to open another 46 shelters in 27 states to help cope with the influx.
The crisis has stemmed from an unprecedented flood of underage would-be Americans, often fleeing violence in Central America and drawn by the lure of a White House eager to mainstream them.
But tens of thousands more are languishing in 116 shelters operated with taxpayer dollars in at least 16 states.
Adult relatives can claim the children from the temporary shelters run by private agencies but funded through taxpayer dollars. HHS doesn’t take any action to determine whether those claiming the minors are themselves in the United States legally.
The Los Angeles Times reported in August that the Department of Homeland Security had deported just 294 Central Americans from among the tens of thousands stretching American hospitality to its breaking point.
I imagine the numbers are horribly under reported. As less than 30% of 100% are actually children and if by chance these numbers are accurate. then another 70% of the illegals are unaccounted for. My math isn’t great but if the remaining 70% population consists of OTM’s. gangbangers, cartel criminals, mohamed and working age or pregnant illegals…… Well you do the math. The part that terrifies me is how the children are being released so carelessly. Is this an obama lovin’ pedophiles dream come true? Where do they go after they are picked up??? No one really knows. Obama and this criminal scumbag administration are running some sort of giant child trafficking, gunrunning anti-American, domestic terrorist ring of all time. WAKE THE EF UP AMERICA
Those 4 million children muddy the immigration debate, raising questions about enforcement and public services for illegal immigrant families whose members include legal residents, experts say.
“Undocumented immigrants live in neighborhoods; they have kids in school,” says Jeffrey Passel, a senior demographer at Pew Hispanic Center and co-author of the report. “That complicates greatly the difficulty of the task of coming up with policies to deal with this population.”
About one-third of the roughly 12 million illegal immigrants in the USA are women, and most illegal immigrants are married or living with someone, the non-partisan research center’s analysis of 2008 Census data shows.
Of the 5.5 million children of illegal immigrants, 73% were born here. In 2003, 63% of illegal immigrants’ children were citizens.

Because more families are made up of both legal and illegal residents, immigration enforcement becomes trickier, says Steven Camarota, research director at the Center for Immigration Studies. The center advocates reduced immigration. “Once kids are involved, it gets tougher to enforce the law,” Camarota says. “It complicates it as a political and emotional matter.”
Although Camarota says there should be room for exceptions, “the presence of a U.S.-born child should not be used as an excuse not to enforce the law.”
Douglas Massey, a sociology professor at Princeton University, favors changes in immigration law that would allow illegal immigrants to stay legally.
That way, Massey says, the taxes paid by newly legalized residents could be used to fund public services they use, such as education and health care.
According to the report, children of illegal immigrants make up 6.8% of children enrolled in kindergarten through 12th grade.
“We don’t really have an option other than somehow bringing these people above board,” Massey says.
The report also shows that illegal immigrants are more likely to live as family units with their children than legal immigrants or U.S.-born Americans.
Nearly half of illegal-immigrant households are couples living with children, compared with 35% of legal-immigrant households and 21% of U.S.-born households.
Passel attributes that disparity to the relative youthfulness of illegal immigrants.
“It’s a very young population, with a large concentration under 40,” he says.
Where is Obama really shipping illegal kids?
