DHS SAYS IT WILL ABIDE BY COURT ORDER BLOCKING BIDEN’S ICE RESTRICTIONS AS APPEAL PROCEEDS

Unaccompanied children are typically moved from Border Patrol custody to Health and Human Services (HHS) care when they are encountered at the southern border as they are moved through the country to be put into the care of sponsors.

HHS is believed to be hiring 800 workers to staff that facility and children are set to begin arriving as soon as July.

It’s about the people, it’s about the children, it’s about jobs,” Skip Alston, a commissioner in Guildford County said. “It’s about doing the right thing for these children, these are innocent children. We shouldn’t put politics in the midst of this.

The use of the campus, which is near a residential neighborhood, is leading to criticism from House Republicans. They are pointing to testimony last year from HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra, who was asked by Rep. Richard Hudson, R-N.C. whether there was truth to reports that the administration was planning to house migrants in the state.

Secretary Xavier Becerra is receiving backlash from a delegation of North Carolina Republicans over administration plans to house migrant children in a former Greensboro school, contradicting a claim the HHS leader made last year.

There is no plan we have to shelter children in North Carolina,” Becerra said in response last May.

The decision to now resettle UACs in Greensboro directly contradicts what you said previously and comes as a complete surprise to us and our constituencies,” the Republican congressional delegation said in a letter to Becerra.

Due to the failures of the Biden administration to secure our southern border, every state, 包括北卡罗莱纳州, is now suffering from the impacts of the Biden border crisis,” 他们说.

There were more than 14,000 unaccompanied minors encountered at the U.S. southern border in May alone. HHS did not respond to a request for a comment from Fox News.

That number is part of a broader 239,000 migrant encounters in May. Republicans have blamed the Biden administration’s policies – including narrowed interior enforcement and a rollback of Trump-era policies – for the surge. The administration has instead pointed to “根本的原因” in Central America like poverty, violence and climate change.
