Republican Representative Andy Biggs of Arizona blasted the Biden administration for nonchalantly losing track of around 20,000 young illegal aliens who entered the United States.
"In his first 13 months in office, President Joe Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) lost track of nearly 20,000 young border crossers who were released into the United States, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) shared," according to Breitbart News.
"Last year, Biggs sent a letter to Biden’s HHS requesting detailed data on the number of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) — young border crossers smuggled through the southern border, alone, without adult relatives — whom the administration released to so-called 'sponsors' across the United States," reported Breitbart.
"This is shocking," Biggs wrote in a new letter he sent to Biden’s HHS.
"The nonchalant attitude displayed in the response highlights the total lack of accountability throughout the Department for the welfare of UAC and is offensive," the letter from Biggs continues.
"HHS’s refusal to verify the immigration status of potential sponsors means that it may be placing UAC in the care of illegal aliens unable to work and provide for the UAC’s needs," Biggs' latest letter states.
"This fact, coupled with your inability to contact sponsors following the placement of UAC in their care raises serious concerns about the safety and well-being of children that your Department appears to be ignoring," Biggs said.
