(AbsoluteNews.com) – More than a year after President Joe Biden reversed many of former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies and caused a border crisis, there are still thousands of people trying to get into America. Some of the migrants pouring across the border in record numbers are allegedly fake children.
On April 2, El Paso Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gloria Chavez reported that 23 immigrants have pretended to be children while crossing into the US through the El Paso Sector. That’s only one of 20 sectors; therefore, the number is likely much higher across the US-Mexico border. And it only accounts for those who were caught, not the ones who slipped through the cracks.

Why would they pretend to be kids? Unlike adult migrants who can be deported right away, unaccompanied minors have to go through a process. While their court cases wind through the judicial system, they’re sent to live with relatives or foster families.
In 2021, immigrant Yery Noel Medina Ulloa pretended to be a minor and was sent to live with a family in Florida. He turned out to be a grown man and murdered Francisco Javier Cuellar, 46, a father of four who was allowing the migrant to stay in his home. The case proved allowing even people who are believed to be minors into the country can have deadly consequences.
