5 Unaccompanied Children Found Among 27 Illegal Aliens Arrested in Del Rio


DEL RIO, TX – U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to Del Rio Sector’s Del Rio Station discovered five unaccompanied illegal immigrant children, Dec. 22.

Around 8 a.m., Border Patrol agents encountered a group of 27 illegal aliens shortly after they illegally entered the United States near Del Rio. The group included a six-year-old child who was caring for her one-year-old cousin, and a five-year-old traveling alone. The children had handwritten notes containing phone numbers of relatives in the United States. One child had a copy of a birth certificate.

Later in the morning, agents encountered a group of five illegal immigrants near Del Rio. Within the group were two unaccompanied siblings, ages nine and seven. The children had contact information for relatives in the United States and birth certificates.

“These five children made a very dangerous journey,” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens. “They were put into the hands of criminal smugglers by the very people who are supposed to take care of them. I’m just thankful that Border Patrol agents were there to intercede and ensure their safety before anything bad could happen.”

All five children are nationals of Honduras and will be processed in accordance with U.S. Customs and Border Protection policies.

Well, since they don't have owners, give them to the Democrats.... Hillary and Obama will know what to do with them now that Epstein Island is out of business......

Actually, shouldn't it be republicans adopting them? They are the ones that say they love children and care about them more than the libs.

Trump was a friend of Epsteins', what about him? Since his wall didn't work and this surge started under his watch anyway. Not to mention the surge he had in 2019 that only slowed because covid hit.

I like how you say "owners", republicans are always advocating for slavery it seems.

Also, you guys are always ripping on me for bringing up trump yet here you are bringing up hillary and obama, I'll have to save this one for later.

Hahaahahaaaaa........ I baited my hook and went "Troll" fishing again knowing I'd catch you and lookie here, set the hook right in your flapping lips again... What a sucker you are !!! ROFLMAO
