As Child Trafficking Booms, Biden Set to End Familial DNA Testing at Southern Border

author Published by Chris Pierce

The Biden administration has announced that they plan to end familial DNA testing for migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border. This development is just the latest evidence of the Biden Admin.’s complicity in international child trafficking.

Not only has familial DNA testing been a vital aspect in preventing the fraudulent entry of thousands upon thousands of illegal aliens, but it has also acted as a crucial roadblock in the fight against child trafficking.

Just the News reports,

DNA testing was originally implemented in the Trump era and utilized by Customs Border Protection – following a court order related to the separation of migrant children from their families and evidence drug cartels were using children to create fake family units to sneak illegal immigrants across the border.

But over the weekend, a CBP memo sent to frontline border agents announced the testing would cease when its vendor contract expires this month.

“The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) familial DNA contract with BODE Technologies will end on May 31, 2023 and all familial DNA testing will conclude on that date,” the CBP memo reads.

Due to the testing, CBP has identified numerous family fraud attempts by illegal aliens over the years.

For example, in 2022, a government accountability office report found that roughly 1 in 10 (8.5%) of children tested were not related to the illegal aliens crossing with them, despite the aliens’ claims.

Other reports have found as many as 30% of suspected migrant fraud families shared no familial relation whatsoever; the Washington Examiner reports, for instance,

In a pilot program, approximately 30% of rapid DNA tests of immigrant adults who were suspected of arriving at the southern border with children who weren’t theirs revealed the adults were not related to the children, an official involved in the system’s temporary rollout who asked to be anonymous in order to speak freely told the Washington Examiner Friday.
