Trump Admin Includes Unaccompanied Minors in Border Closure

The Trump administration has included unaccompanied minors in the border closure order in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This allows for the immediate deportation of unaccompanied minors who have unlawfully entered the U.S.

According to The Daily Caller:

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) confirmed that underage minors who unlawfully enter the United States without any parents or guardians are subject to immediate deportation, the latest action in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Trump administration, under orders from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), earlier in March declared that the northern and southern borders would be sealed off to all non-essential traffic as a way to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. While nearly all illegal aliens would be immediately repatriated under the order, CBP originally made an exception for unaccompanied minors.

The administration first deemed that unaccompanied alien children, or UAC, apprehended at the border would be transferred to the Office of Refugee Resettlement. However, the agency is now clarifying that, in some circumstances, they can be subject to the administration’s order.

“All aliens CBP encounters may be subject to the CDC’s Order Suspending Introduction Of Persons From A Country Where A Communicable Disease Exists (March 20, 2020), including minors,” read a CBP statement obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

It was noted that the Office of Refugee Resettlement will handle the minors who will not be immediately deported for reasons including suspected human trafficking or illness.

Agree 100%. If they do nothing on the interior as far as enforcement, then nothing else matters much. They can also seize all assets they obtained through illegal means (entered illegally) and sell them off at auction to offset the price of mass deportations and the building of more walls.

I can agree with about 70% of what you write. First, 100% dirty dems. THEY GO! That’s 33.3%. Second, 100% of the Sharia-law loving islamics. THEY GO! (The good muslims are the apostates. Embrace them with open arms.) That is another 33.3%. As for the illegals, there are about 250,000, say 2.3% — out of an estimated 11,000,000 — who are assets to the US and it is cutting off our nose to spite our face to lose them. I am talking about the children brought here illegally by illegal parents who maintained straight-A averages in school, who are valedictorians and who, but for an “accident” of birth were not born within our borders would be praised and respected. I am also talking about people like Dr. Alfrado Quinones Hinosa who came to the US illegally, but now is one of the world’s 25-top rated brain surgeons. Honestly, WE CANNOT PAINT ALL OF THESE PEOPLE WITH THE SAME BROAD BRUSH! Exceptions MUST be made.

They shouldn`t have broadened their brush here in the first place. They should have turned them over to the Mexican police in the second place. These illegals make us look guilty because of their crimes. Get over it and don`t allow this to happen again.
It`s way past time to bring out the guns. No means a death sentence now not no.

Agree 100 percent. Mass deportations. If they don’t do enforcement of the interior, nothing else really matters. Deport all and seize whatever assets they have illegally gained (entered illegally) and sell at auction to offset the cost to deport and build more walls.

We must return all illegals. Our country cannot risk them bringing diseases into our country. We are already paying the price with our stay at home orders. We have businesses going out of business with the corono virus and untold unemployed applying for benefits. US first. We have cruise ships pulling into our ports bringing infected people on board Those of us who obey the law are getting exposed Florida has a large population of aged individuals who are most at risk of which I am one and I resent this intrusion into our country. Legal citizens, not illegals need the protection of our government.

I am for the deportation of all illegals, but I think we should exempt the children. They did not come here illegally. They just followed their parents like all children do. They had no voice. Meanwhile they learned English, assimilated into the American way of life . We paid for their schooling, why throw all that away, when they could be an asset to America. If these children didn’t commit any crimes then I think they belong here. The Parents are still subject for deportation. Now they must decide if they are willing to give up their children? That alone is a horrible punishment for the selfish decision they made by coming her illegally. I just think it is wrong to punish the children. They are the innocent ones.

I agree with this move. The unaccompanied are used to create a wedge to get illegals in. Must ask why are they unaccompanied in first place? They can be carrying any number of diseases including China Flu. Keep them out let left houl.

Thank You President Trump for looking out for Americans first.Now I hope you stop HHS from bringing in more workers from foreign countries as planned for in the next few months. There is not enough test kits to test all Americans, so I know that these foreign workers and farm workers will nor be tested prior to entry. Plus Americans do not need any more competition for jobs in landscaping, construction, hotel, food service, etc .

It is high time that we take criminal law breaking illegal aliens to task. If you or ony one forces its way into this country they should not be allowed to remain, return them right back across the border that they crossed illegally. This people should not be allowed in, afforded medical care or legal representation. They are foreign law breakers with no rights whatsoever!

Just figure out a test for these future brain surgeons and we should let them right in. By the way that is what the legal emigration laws and system is really supposed to do, so forget the illegals. I do not want a law breaker operating on my brain – thank you very much

Unaccompanied Minors are just a scam. They send the minors in alone and then after they are allowed to stay for a while, Just By Chance the parents find out where the minors are and of course we must allow the parents to be reunited with their children. Now there are four or five people living off of the American Tax Payers. After another short period, the grandfather and grandmother is located and of course, they can’t survive without their family so we bring them into the country, after all, we wouldn’t want to destroy a family, now there are Six. This goes on and on and on until there are a dozen or so, brothers, sisters, uncles, and aunts all living off of our tax dollars. Let us not forget the babies that are born here, just by chance, of course, now they are Citizens and the new citizen’s mother and father and brothers and sisters are all on welfare and getting free medical care, after all, we wouldn’t want to infringe on the rights of an American Citizen. At what point in time will there be more people taking from the system then there are people putting into the system? This must end.
