ICE official says the feds have identified over 600 migrant children being ‘recycled’ at the border by traffickers.
“We’ve identified over 600 children that have been recycled in this methodology,” Benner explained. “We interviewed several of the children as they were departing the United States, and some of them had indicated they’ve made the trip as many as eight times with separate, unrelated adults every time.”
Democrats cry about children in Pres Obama constructed cages, while really ignoring the safety of those same children and the SAFETY of AMERICAN CITIZENS. BUILD WALL!

More than 600 children were “recycled” through the border over the last year, including some who were carried across eight times, by a different person each time, looking to exploit lax policies to gain a foothold in the U.S., a top ICE official told Congress on Wednesday.
And those are only cases that were detected, officials said.
The recycled children are one of the more disturbing aspects of illegal border flow over the last 12 months, which set records for the number of children and families who snuck into the U.S.
The families were drawn by a lax policy, imposed by a federal court, that gives adults a quick release into communities as long as they brought a son or daughter with them.
The result was massive levels of fraud, with adults renting or outright buying unrelated children in order to present themselves as a family, authorities said. In some cases it was a one-off, but in other instances children were “recycled” across the border multiple times, said Derek N. Benner, acting deputy director at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
“We’ve identified over 600 children that have been recycled,” he said. More

This is intensely disturbing: Children are being manipulated and used as pawns for illegal activity at our southern border. It is past time for the Democrats to work with Republicans in order to secure our borders and fix our broken immigration system.
To even fathom the thought that people would actually sell their most precious gifts from God to make a dollar to help someone lie, cheat and steal to illegally enter, over and over again. 😭
