A third of children caught crossing border are not related to claimed parents


Daily MailAn Immigration and Customs Enforcement pilot of new rapid DNA testing at the border has found that nearly a third of those tested were not biologically related to the children in their custody.

ICE conducted the pilot for a few days earlier this month in El Paso and McAllen, Texas, finding about 30 per cent of those tested were not related to the children they claimed were their own, an official told the Washington Examiner.

The official said that these were not cases of step-fathers or adoptive parents.

'Those were not the case. In these cases, they are misrepresented as family members,' the official said.

Sounds like that's an easy way to dispose of a third of the asylum claims. Ask if they are related to the children they are with. Test them. If they lie, send them home -- and put them in the identity database so next time you don't even have to bother.
