This is the crazy that the Democratic lies are creating. This could have endangered the agents. And what’s more infuriating is that it was because the CBP was exercising extraordinary care to comply with the law.
Via Daily Caller:
Democratic officials called a situation in which U.S. Customs and Border Protection prevented three minors from roaming Chicago unaccompanied “kidnapping” and “troubling,” despite a law requiring the agency do so.
An “adult female” was traveling with three children, ages 9, 10 and 13, Thursday from Mexico to Chicago. The female was deemed “inadmissible” by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers, CBP told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
The children were held at the Chicago O’Hare airport for more than 12 hours until a guardian picked them up. The adult female is the children’s cousin, WBEZ reported. The cousin and children’s names were not reported, and neither was the cousin’s age.
“CBP was doing everything in their power to unite these children and their parents instead of turning them over to Child Protective Services,” a CBP spokesperson told the DCNF.
