On Wednesday, April 7, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott held a press conference announcing an investigation pending accusations of child sex abuse, neglect, and more at the Freeman Expo Center in San Antonio, where thousands of migrant children are being housed. Gov. Abbott said there were four complaints, including claims of child sex abuse at the facility, understaffing, children not eating, and the failure to separate children with or without COVID-19.
The Bexar County Sheriff's Office later confirmed it was called out at 5:16 pm to investigate the allegations of a sexual offense. Because of the nature of the incident and the investigation's preliminary status, the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office could only release limited information.
The Coliseum is housing several; hundred unaccompanied illegal alien children. Because of the magnitude of the crisis, Catholic Charities and other social service agencies have received contracts from the Biden Administration to help care for the kids. Catholic Charities made a public announcement hastily seeking volunteers.
Besides the alleged sexual assault, the children’s health is not being fully assessed or address. Some Border Patrol agents who have contacted the kids have developed mumps, measles, whooping cough beyond the COVID-19 infections.
The children also face another danger in the U.S. from adults who claim to be caregivers and sponsors. Older kids also victimize the younger, weaker children.
Thi Biden Administration could have avoided this tragedy had not encouraged children to be used as a tool to circumvent the legal immigration process. Cartels are making money off adults who are using the children and victimizing them as well.
The children are under the care of social service agencies who are part of the poverty industry that supposedly serves the poor. These poverty agencies get paid by the government (taxpayers) to care for illegal alien children.
In the meantime, San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg, who is running for re-election, said, “These allegations about the federal operation are disturbing if true, and a thorough investigation is warranted.” He should have blamed the Biden administration and said if these illegal alien children were deported, it would avoid these problems, save taxpayer money, and protect citizens from crime and health problems.
Biden and the Democrats must accept responsibility for the border crisis and the fate of these children. How the Democrats spin this tragedy in the news will be interesting.
