“Unaccompanied Alien Children” Not to Be Housed in Chicagoland

With nothing that I have seen in what is called the “mainstream media,” Congressman Randy Hultgren, who announced that “unaccompanied alien children” might be housed in Chicagoland, has released the following press release:

Administration Withdraws Chicagoland Monastery as Location for Immigrant Border Children after Pressure from Hultgren

Washington, DC – U.S. Representative Randy Hultgren (IL-14) today issued a statement following notification from the Department of Health and Human Services that efforts to pursue moving Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) to a former monastery in Olympia Fields, Illinois, has been withdrawn and will not be considered further.

“When minors as young as 13 are in danger from being exploited by human traffickers, moving these children even further from the border to the Chicago area is a wrong move for their safety—and the administration did not think this through,” said Rep. Hultgren.

“These children, unaccompanied by their families and under the control of smugglers and trafficking organizations, don’t need a stop gap solution.

“They should be returned to their home countries quickly and with human dignity, not left to languish in legal limbo.

“Further, I repeat the call to send the National Guard to the border.

“If this truly is a humanitarian crisis as the president has said, we need to support our Border Patrol which is overwhelmed by this influx of immigrant children.

“Clearly, the current system on the books is endangering children. While its original goal may have been to stop human trafficking, it has become a loophole human traffickers are now exploiting.

“These children can be fully exploited and end up as sex slaves or forced into service for the drug cartels, and no one knows what happens to them after they are put into the hands of traffickers.

“While the White House may now be sending funds to a few key countries to encourage those children to stay home, they are sending mixed messages by continuing to disburse these minors to taxpayer-funded sanctuaries across the country while their cases are processed.

“We need to send clear messages to these countries and the children at risk of exploitation.”

  1. Thank you for your stance, Congressman Hultgren.

    Chicago is definitely too far from the border and I fear that we would house, feed, treat medically, etc. these children for a long time.

    They need to be returned to their countries and our country needs to stand firm on doing that and dispelling the myth that children will be accepted here.

    The ones making the money are the scammers, weirdos, coyotes, porno kings, etc.

  2. Thank goodness Hultgren put on some pressure.

    These people have to be sent back period for their protection against OUR drug cartels, human trafficking and sex slave rings.

    The Health and Human Resources only covers a short period of time and then these kids are released on the streets.

    Our Government can not protect them. With that said OUR sex slave rings,Our drug cartels will get stronger and that we do not need.

    I understand the views of David Bachman but we can not save the world as we are trying to save our own kids born here.

  3. A better idea.

    If Obama doesn’t want to send the National Guard then we should send these people to the White House.

    They will get all the protection they need.

  4. Atta boy!, Randy.

    Drive these rats back in their holes.

    Keep the pressure on them to not cave on the insane policies of this regime.

  5. I hope others are reading this. Cindy, and YES I will direct this directly to you. YOU are one sick person.

    Calling these children ” Rats” and sending them back in their holes is completely insane.

    How could anyone say that, but you of course did.

    This statement of yours just shows how demented your mind is.

    These are people not rats, these are children, not rats.

    How I would love to send you to the areas they live for just one day and maybe just maybe you will shut your mouth.

    No one who believes these people should be sent back to their county feels that they are RATS, as you put it” it is that the U.S. is concerned about the kids and know that we can not take care of them.

    They will fall into our crime.

    See readers how this Cindy person thinks: Calling children Rats

    Randy is trying to help not hurt these children.

  6. Once again, Miss psychopath doesn’t know how to read for comprehension.

    Anyone reading this would absolutely know for sure that the rats are our own imbecilic government regime Agenda Twenty-oners; but you have to take everything and turn it inside out.

    SHUT UP you EVIL EVIL witch!

    I am thinking of suing you for everything you have if you do NOT stop attacking me at every single turn.

  7. Bring it on Cindy, remember freedom of speech, I have kept a paper trail and it doesn’t look good for you as far as a lawsuit goes.

  8. Cindy, teenagers thrive on drama.

    Bullies thrive on attention.

    There is a way to render them impotent.

    Leave the weak responses to online comments to Bianchi.

    Be stronger and offer the children their seat at the table but no one needs to listen to them.

    One day, perhaps, they will offer a glimmer of comprehension.

    An ounce of respect.

    A moment of clarity.

    I have seen brief moments here and then.

    We should encourage good behavior and ignore the poor behavior.

    For children who comment incessantly the desire for attention is palpable.

    Never feed them with negative attention.

    Teach them.

    Bet you’ll feel better for it.
