WHAT IS THE DIF­FER­ENCE BE­TWEEN...

AN UN­AC­COM­PA­NIED MI­NOR AND AN IL­LE­GAL JU­VE­NILE ALIEN?

Public News (Houston) - - NEWS - by Bart Pearston

In light of last weeks’ bru­tal rape of a 14 year old girl in a Rockville Mary­land High School bath­room by two il­le­gal im­mi­grant gang mem­bers with past crim­i­nal ar­rests aged 17 and 18, you may be won­der­ing what that has to do with a North Hous­ton on­line news­pa­per ar­ti­cle. Did you know they were orig­i­nally ar­rested in 2016 for cross­ing the bor­der into Texas and came through Hous­ton with iden­ti­fy­ing MS-13 tat­toos? I’m bet­ting out­side of this pa­per you never had heard that any­where. Closer to home, a 16 year old Jersey Vil­lage girl was mur­dered for tear­ing down the Sa­tanic al­tar of two Il­le­gal Im­mi­grants just ear­lier this month? They were both pre­vi­ously ar­rested for crimes but never turned over to ICE for de­por­ta­tion be­cause of our un­of­fi­cial “Sanctuary” city sta­tus.

I’m sure you are think­ing this is ei­ther a trick ques­tion and there isn’t any dif­fer­ence or a re­ally tough ques­tion and you have no idea. The an­swer is legally, since 2002, a huge dif­fer­ence; A lit­tle background first. INS was re­spon­si­ble for ALL Il­le­gal aliens and by law they were to be de­ported to their coun­try of origin. In 1997, the Flores Set­tle­ment de­ci­sion set new stan­dards for de­ten­tion, re­lease, and treat­ment of all Il­le­gal alien ju­ve­niles. With the cre­ation of the De­part­ment of Home­land Se­cu­rity af­ter 9-11, EV­ERY­THING changed. No longer were they legally un­der INS care and now legally re- ferred to as “Un­ac­com­pa­nied Mi­nors’. Un­der Obama’s DACA and DAPA Ex­ec­u­tive or­ders, these mi­nors are no longer de­ported. If any­thing, mil­lions are spent to ac­com­mo­date them here now.

A de­part­ment cre­ated in 1980 un­der the De­part­ment of Health and Hu­man Ser­vices called the Of­fice of Refugee Re­set­tle­ment was given the re­spon­si­bil­ity of pro­vid­ing round the clock youth care work­ers, teach­ers, clin­i­cians, case man­agers, cooks, main­te­nance, ad­min­is­tra­tors, and man­age­ment. Un­ac­com­pa­nied Mi­nors are cur­rently pro­vided care by South­west Key. This is a pri­vate 501(c) non­profit which is al­most com­pletely funded by fed­eral and state grants (98.2%). In 2014, 20,000 U.A.’s were housed at a SWK cen­ter alone. They have be­come a pub­li­cized des­ti­na­tion for those com­ing from our south­ern bor­der il­le­gally. It is also a tran­si­tional cen­ter for refugee mi­nors. As I had pre­vi­ously re­ported, Gov. Ab­bott’s “re­fusal” to ac­cept “Syr­ian Refugees” in 2016 was ac­tu­ally just a denial of state fund­ing for the cen­ters for adults and chil­dren from Syria. Al­though Texas has re­ceived more refugees than any other state, it has no power to refuse to ac­cept them, only to refuse to help pay for them.

The rea­son for this lengthy in­tro­duc­tion and background is that of the 27
