Neither President Joe Biden nor the “Border Czar” Vice President Kamala Harris has addressed this situation.

The Biden-Harris regime made a big show since Day 1 blasting the Trump admin’s “inhumane” border policy and immediately set to work to dismantle all of the guardrails that the previous administration put in place.

What are the results? A record border surge with no signs of slowing down and tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors… of which the Biden-Harris administration has lost track of at least 45,000 of them. That’s about 40% of the 114,000 unaccompanied minors that have crossed since Biden took office.

The Biden-Harris administration has lost track of at least 45,000 unaccompanied minors who were brought across the southern border illegally — and President Joe Biden has yet to issue a statement about it.

So far this year, unaccompanied minors arriving at the border have hit record numbers. In June, there were 15,234 encounters with unaccompanied children, in July, 18,958 encounters, and in August, there were 18,847 encounters, according to Customs and Border Patrol data.

Once processed by Border Patrol, unaccompanied minors fall under the supervision of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families. The agency reportedly works with a network of 200 shelters in roughly 24 states, according to a report by the Associated Press. Shelters are often set up inside military bases, stadiums and convention centers, referred to as “emergency intake sites.”

At its peak, HHS had 20,339 children in its care in April, with an average shelter occupancy rate of 76%.

During the detention process, HHS works with nongovernmental organizations to go through a vetting process and transport the children to reported family members or sponsors already living in the U.S.

You’d think that a guy that seems to love kids so much, it would be a “big effing deal” to lose track of tens of thousands of children. How can he creepily sniff and kiss them if they’re not around?

Where’s AOC in her crisp, white outfit crying about the tens of thousands of missing children while being photographed?

During the Presidential debates, Biden was blasting Trump for not reuniting 545 children with their families.

This was a disingenuous attack because the vast majority of parents didn’t want their children sent back to Central America and chose to remain separated because they wanted to use them as a free ticket into the U.S.

Here’s a related ClashDaily story with some thoughts on that:

Maybe We SHOULDN’T Reunite Children With Parents Who Send Them Across The Border Alone

Now, let’s also be clear here that “minors” in this situation mostly means older teens — age 15-17 who choose to “disappear” rather than follow the legal process. They know if they keep their nose clean, they’re going to be allowed to stay and will get DACA protection.

But then, there’s a lot about the “unaccompanied minors” that the Democrats, Open Borders activists, and their sycophants in the Corporate Media don’t want to address.

For years we’ve known that the situation at the southern border needs to be fixed.

It’s no secret that criminal cartels exploit the current situation to make money by encouraging desperate people who “just want a better life” to circumvent the legal U.S. immigration process.

And boy, does it work.

They also know that it’s easy to get children into the U.S. and because of Obama’s DACA and DAPA programs, getting a child across the border is a foot in the door for the whole family.

We also know that it is an incredibly dangerous journey that people are undertaking under the guidance of criminals who don’t really care if they live or die.

The situation is so bad, that the only real solution is (a) to build a physical barrier to stop the flood of illegal migrants into the country, and (b) enforce the laws on the books.

Of course, Democrats don’t want to do that. Both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris tossed a lot of criticism at former President Trump for his Big Beautiful Wall and his border policies, but their “more humane” response to the situation at the border has only exacerbated the problem to unprecedented levels of illegal migration.

And the worst part is that it’s incentivizing parents to make the absolutely asinine decision to send their minor children alone with human traffickers.

UNACCOMPANIED MINORS: How Biden’s Immigration Policy Is Incentivizing Family Separation

These policies affect real people. We have seen heartbreaking videos of children that were brought over the border by coyotes and abandoned alone waiting for CBP officers to pick them up.

It’s pretty clear that these smugglers don’t give two craps about what happens to these children.

And it now appears that the Biden-Harris administration doesn’t give two craps about them, either. They’ve lost track of over 45,000 unaccompanied minors. Where are they? Are they safe? Are they being trafficked? We don’t know.

Last month, Border Control President Brandon Judd wrote an opinion piece for Fox News and it detailed how the administration “wasn’t prepared” for the surge that the new “humane border control policy” would cause and is now likely putting children at risk.

In the first few months of President Biden’s administration, the Border Patrol apprehended more unaccompanied children than at any point in its history.

The Biden administration wasn’t prepared, and the Border Patrol was forced to hold a good number of these children long past what the law allowed.

Instead of creating a long-term solution, the Biden administration merely cut back on the vetting process of the sponsors to whom children were being released. This decision was made in the name of expediency rather than the safety and well-being of the child.

Even under ideal circumstances vetting is a gamble, but when the government cuts corners it is guaranteed to fail. And failure in this case means the lives of vulnerable children are put in danger.

History has taught us that it is almost certain a good number of the 45,000 children the administration has lost are being forced into the sex industry or are being used for forced labor.

Judd then says that the Flores Settlement needs to be reviewed, the government response needs to change, and catch and release must end.

But no Democrat administration will do any of those things.

The Biden-Harris administration’s ad hoc way of handling the situation has ripple effects. For example, in Washington state, foster kids are being kicked out of their homes in order to provide accommodation for “unaccompanied minors.”

This administration has no plan and no freaking clue. Just like the President himself. #LetsGoBrandon

Check out Doug’s latest book, The Art of Joe: The Political Brilliance of President Biden. If you have left-leaning family members, workmates, or classmates, to buy several copies and place them in common areas. Make sure you have your video camera ready for when they pick it up and thumb through it because they will be triggered which will make for a great viral video to share across social media. Also, buy a couple for the GOP NeverTrumpers that you know. Finally, both the book’s cover and the epilogue, Notable Quotable Joe are worth the price of admission. We’ve included before and after Biden on Afghanistan. Jen Psaki will no likey this book, but you will. BTW, the book is 95% bereft of any content. Just like Biden’s head.

Check out the latest painting in Doug’s MAGA series… “FJB“.
