Senator Marsha Blackburn is holding the Biden administration accountable for the mishandling of migrant children.
The New York Times recently reported a rise in child exploitation, where Blackburn’s letter demands answers from Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra regarding the government’s handling of unaccompanied migrant children.
Reports of forced labor and whistleblower testimony alleging that the government is delivering some to human traffickers have raised serious concerns about the well-being of these vulnerable children.
Blackburn has demanded that Becerra provide her office with answers to a series of questions, including when he learned of the mishandling and exploitation of migrant children.
Republicans have criticized the Biden administration’s policies, which they say have encouraged illegal migration and put children at risk. The ongoing border crisis is a serious issue that demands action, and it is imperative that the government takes responsibility for its failed policies.
