Report: Illegals Purchasing, Renting Infants to Skirt U.S. Immigration Laws

The Epoch Times Tuesday reported a horrifying account from Kevin McAleenan, acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), about tactics used by illegal aliens to skirt U.S. Immigration laws. 

“McAleenan said in one case, a 51-year-old illegal alien had purchased a 6-month-old baby for $80 in Guatemala so that he could easily get into the United States,” according to the report. “The man, a Honduran national, confessed to border agents when he was faced with a DNA test.”

Illegal aliens are reportedly renting or sometimes buying children so they “can gain quick release into the United States after crossing the border illegally.”

“We’ve seen all manner of smuggling organizations communicating to potential customers and to those crossing the border how to bring a child with them to be allowed to stay in the United States,” according to McAleenan, who testified in front of congress on July 8. “They’ve been active in advertising, literally on Facebook and on the radio in Central America.”

Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), which is part of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), reportedly interviewed “families” that were suspected of being fraudulent.

“In the last eight weeks, HSI special agents have identified 5,500 fraudulent families—about 15 percent of all cases referred,” Epoch Times said. “McAleenan said agents have uncovered 921 fake documents and 615 individuals have been prosecuted for trafficking or smuggling a child.”
