The Daily Caller News Foundation published the entire House Homeland Security committee hearing because of the pertinent and devastating topics and information it unearthed. In the three and a half hours long hearing, former Border Chief Rodney Scott said it is nearly impossible for agents to determine whether children are being trafficked and exploited.
Wednesday’s hearing was aptly titled “Open Borders, Closed Case” which focused on building a case against Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for his “dereliction of duty.”
The committee focused on harrowing details such as the New York Times report in February of this year which explained that the United States government has lost track of approximately 85,000 migrant children released from federal custody. Children are being “reused and taken back and froth across the southern border to create fake family units that have an easier chance of making it into the country” Scott said.
“That means a child being teamed up with a family over and over again. So he has to make that trip over and over again because that gets them to be a family unit and they get into that categorical exemption to get released,” Scott stated.
“Every one of those cases was discovered by an agent interviewing the child and finding little cracks in the story. That takes time, agents don’t have that time today, those conversations are no longer going on at all, they’re being pumped through the system like fast food commodities.”
Another example of dereliction of duty is that the Biden administration is ending DNA testing of migrants which had been a lucrative tool in determining whether or not children were being used by smugglers and traffickers, Scott added.
“Worse than that, now the DNA piece of it is being shut down as well. That was one of the last tools to be able to quickly be able to prove somebody was not related.”

NYC Mayor Adams’ budget cuts slash total number of police and education funds
“No city should be left to handle a national humanitarian crisis largely on its own, and without the significant and timely support we need from Washington, D.C., today’s budget will only be the beginning,” said New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams about his decision to make budget cuts as a result of the overwhelming migrant crisis.
However, those who will suffer from budget cuts to the city’s services to offset the cost of dealing with the ever-increasing number of migrants are those that are in place to make the city better.
“The cuts will see police freeze hiring and bring the total number of police officers below 30,000. It would further slash the education budget by $1 billion over two years and affect a litany of other agencies” reports Just The News.
Albeit, Adams admitted: “In all my time in government, this is probably one of the most painful exercises I’ve gone through.” More than 110,000 migrants have arrived in New York City over the past year, including roughly 13,000 sent from Texas by GOP Governor Greg Abbott as part of his ongoing bussing plan to send new arrivals to the U.S. to sanctuary cities.
However, similar to other leaders of sanctuary cities, Adams is unwilling to put his money where his mouth is. In September, Adams warned that the crisis would “destroy New York City” and begged the federal government to pay for his mess.
“I’m gonna tell you something, New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I didn’t see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this,” Adams said at the time. “The federal government needs to do its job. We need the federal government, the Congress members, the Senate and the president to do their job: close the borders,” said Adams’ advisor Ingrid Lewis Martin insisted in early October. “And until you close the borders, you need to come on with a full-on decompression strategy where you can take all of our migrants and move them through our 50 states.”
