Biden To Face Human Trafficking Complaints In New Committee Hearing
The Biden administration has single-handedly unleashed a humanitarian crisis the likes of which the United States has never seen before. The President's radical open-borders agenda has caused an unprecedented influx of illegal immigrants, while simultaneously encouraging human smuggling and drug cartels.
Even worse, the Department of Health and Human Services is being accused of knowingly transferring unaccompanied migrant children into the hands of criminals and sex traffickers.
This is an outrageous and horrifying situation that must be addressed immediately. The House Oversight and Accountability Committee is taking steps to investigate the Biden administration's role in the crisis, but it is up to the American people to hold the government accountable for any wrongdoing.
In letters to HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra and Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs (HSGAC) Chairman Gary Peters, D-Mich., first obtained by Fox News Digital, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and other GOP senators demand a hearing to investigate the shocking whistleblower claim.
"We write in response to recently reported claims by federal employee whistleblower that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is knowingly transferring unaccompanied migrant children in the custody of criminals, including sex traffickers," the senators wrote.
"This cannot be swept under the rug. Congress must immediately take action to stop the atrocities this whistleblower claims are being committed by the federal government itself," they wrote. "The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs must call a hearing to further investigate these whistleblower claims."
The senators cited recently released video of a former HHS employee, Tara Lee Rodas, who was detailed to the Emergency Intake Site in Pomona, California. Senators said her testimony described several "disturbing" claims about the agency's Unaccompanied Children Program, including the department's failure to place children into the homes of "safe, non-criminal sponsors."
