Biden's HHS Releasing Thousands Infected With Tuberculosis Into American Communities

 July 20, 2023

President Joe Biden's Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has been accused of releasing thousands of migrant children with inactive tuberculosis into various American communities over the past year.

As the Washington Times unveils, a significant number of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) with dormant infections have reportedly been set free by HHS into the U.S. The source of this information is a court-ordered report reviewed by Stephen Dinan, a writer at the Washington Times.

As part of the federal government’s systematic integration of migrant children into the United States, this alleged action is garnering attention. More details can be found on the Breitbart News website.

Details of the Court-Ordered Report

According to the reviewed report, an approximate count of 2,500 children bearing latent infections were released into 44 states within the previous year.

The report was primarily focused on HHS's treatment of these children.

In the same period, a total of about 126,000 children were set free, pointing to an infection rate of one in fifty migrant children.

Government's Defense and Further Findings

The government justifies its inability to treat these children due to the short period they spend in custody.

Apparently, treating these infections demands three to nine months, a timeframe the government believes is not feasible.

Hence, HHS discharges the infected children to sponsors, informing local health authorities with the hope that they could organize treatment before the dormant infection becomes active.

Lack of Adequate Shelter Space and Treatment for Migrant Children

The government report further discloses that HHS does not regularly treat UACs with inactive tuberculosis.

The reason being that these children are generally released into the U.S. interior expeditiously.

Moreover, the report discovered that HHS lacks sufficient shelter space for UACs found to have criminal records. However, it did not detail where these migrant children end up eventually.

Sharp Increase in Inflow of Migrant Children into the U.S. Interior

The report's revelations occur at a time when the Biden administration is criticized for significantly boosting the influx of UACs into the U.S. interior.

Jessica Vaughan, Director of Policy at the Center for Immigration Studies, discussed the extent of the UAC program during an April hearing, emphasizing its growth since Biden took office.

"Under the Biden policies, the annual number of UACs referred to [Health and Human Services] custody after crossing illegally has tripled from an average of 40,000 a year to more than 120,000 in each of the last two years," Vaughan said.

She continued to highlight the impact of the current administration's policies on this issue.

"Half of the 600,000 unaccompanied minors who have been released into the country since 2012 have arrived on Biden’s watch," Vaughn added.
