Graham Outlines the Abuse of Children Being ‘Rented’ to Help Migrants Claim Asylum: ‘This Is a Sick System’

Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) explained how migrant children are being “rented” to help other migrants claim asylum when attempting to cross into the U.S. over the southern border.

During an interview with Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” host Maria Bartiromo pressed Graham on the claim that migrants have been “renting” their children so that others can claim asylum in the U.S. and his claim that 30% of families apprehended while attempting to cross the U.S.-Mexico border are not really related.

Graham responded by saying that officials at the border have started a “pilot program” where they are testing the DNA of migrant family units at the border and that he was told of “about 60 children” who were being “recycled” at the border to allow more people to claim asylum.

“They told us about 60 children that were recycled,” said Graham. “They pick the child up in Central America, they bring them to the United States, everybody’s released, and the child goes back to Central America to do it again.”

The Senate Judiciary chairman continued on to call the system that has “exploited” children “sick” and “rotten to its core.” He also brought up that “100,000 unaccompanied minors” had been apprehended at the southern border “this year alone.”

“This is a sick system. It is rotten to its core. These children have been exploited. We’ve picked up 100,000 unaccompanied minors this year alone. They’re taking this journey, God knows what happens to them on the way, and when they get here 98 percent of them stay and the parents send a note [saying,] “if you want your child to come to America, hire a coyote.”

Acting Customs and Border Patrol Commissioner Mark Morgan told Republican senators last month that migrants were renting children to allow for easier passage into the U.S. through the southern border.

Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said that he could not “believe” that people were “renting babies” to enter the country.

“I can’t believe that this actually happens but that people down there in Central America or Mexico are renting babies to get across the border and then sending them back and renting them again to get across the border,” said Grassley.

It literally breaks my heart for these innocent children, and I want to slap the crap out of the parents for doing this to their most precious and innocent souls, their children!!!! Why on God’s green earth would you think that they would be safe with a coyote!

If the kids say anything that lets the customs know they are not related, their family is killed in the country they are sent from. That is the real world congress close their ears to. When the truth is spoken the first word from their mouth is racist for telling the real truth.
Any customs agent will tell you this in private if some one would bother asking for the actual ritual.

Don’t you love how the fake news tries to nitpick this statement to mean something else, totally ignoring the FACT that children are being sold for money to coyotes who use the fake asylum claim to gain entry into the USA because they are using that loophole that “families” get processed faster and released faster and they can disappear, using new names, etc. It explains why there were so many men in that one facility.


You can’t win. We are demonized for separating young children from parents, but the same people are complaining that in Libya young kids are being put in with adults where they can be abused. Pick an answer to the problem – any answer. Oh, wait. Maybe reduce the flood of people in the first place?


Dumb, dumb, dumb. Willful blindness on the part of Congress is rampant Enacting laws means they must enforce the laws not pick and choose after the fact. Seriously, what is wrong with our elected officials? Not to mention those ‘appointed’ to various offices.

The offspring that are born here by Immigrants that are here illegally should not be automatic American Citizen. because that is akin of someone getting money illegally, investing that money, make a profit then return the illegally obtained money. But gets to keep the profits.


One policy that needs to change immediately is that a child of illegal immigrants that is born on US soil is an American citizen. I believe that leads to many other problems and exacerbates many other issues. Where should the line be drawn? Should children born in the US by legal or immigrants with visas automatically have US citizenship? Should only children of American citizens born here become citizens automatically? That will be a tricky policy to determine AND gain majority votes in Congress.
