USDA volunteers tasked with interviewing, processing unaccompanied migrant children: Report

For months, President Joe Biden has attempted to downplay worries about a lack of security at the southern U.S. border, even as a massive influx of illegal migrants continue to pour into the country. But while Biden insists that the situation is not a crisis, his administration’s latest actions seem to clearly suggest otherwise.

The Washington Examiner reports that some 500 personnel from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) have been dispatched to lend assistance at the border, where they’ll reportedly be helping process an influx of unaccompanied migrant children. 

USDA babysitters?

A USDA spokesperson confirmed the bizarre move in an email, which explained that USDA employees are being recruited to help deal with the record-setting number of minor migrants that continue to come across the southern U.S. border.

“The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is partnering with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to support the federal government’s urgent efforts to care for and place Unaccompanied Children who have entered the U.S. via the southern border,” the email message reportedly read.

“HHS is seeking interested candidates to serve from two weeks up to 120 days for a voluntary deployment detail as part of the effort,” the email added.

A “call to service”

According to a report from Spectator, the strategy comes in the wake of an internal email sent from acting USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service Chief Terry Cosby.

“These are children in need and government employees now have an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of these children, families and communities impacted by this migration,” he wrote.

Crosby went on to advise USDA employees that they should “seriously consider answering this call to service to make a difference.”

No training required

Another HHS document was quoted as saying that those who volunteer “should not expect formal, classroom-based training classes up front as the need for help is immediate.”

This is despite the fact that UDSA workers will likely be interviewing illegal immigrant children who have experienced “gang violence, sexual abuse, domestic violence, physical abuse, being separated for a long time from parents, and witnessing the death or suffering of people they love.”

The primary task of the incoming USDA volunteers will be to assist HHS’s Office of Refugee Resettlement, which is responsible for detaining unaccompanied minors for a period of one month while American-based family members are sourced.

The Washington Examiner noted that involving the USDA is “extremely unusual,” as the department typically “has no role in immigration or border affairs.”

    1. What has this guy, who is supposed to be president done to this country??? What can we even do to counteract it? Maybe impeachment of Biden and Harris (who is even worse than Biden). It’s worth a try!!

  2. “ involving the USDA is “extremely unusual,” as the department typically “has no role in immigration or border affairs.””: there is very little that is usual in this biden administration.

  3. We already HAVE a fenced in, razor wire topped WALL around the capitol, close and lock the gates , cut off all communication, and “presto” new prison. The criminals are already inside ..Keep them there. National guard can serve a “prison guards” to keep the inmates where they belong.

  4. Get rid of the top four – Biden, Harris, Pelosi, and Shumer..
    Send them to inspect the FEMA camps, from inside locked doord.

  5. Biden’s Folly has made this a more miserable existence for the purpose of establishing future democratic votes. This is truly a whole demonstration of how the Left ignores how their actions can hurt the US as to establish their power! There is a purpose for vetting, and it has worked for many years.

  6. Biden will do exactly like Obama did. Bring them in and then give everyone who takes a few kids– no matter how big the kids are. They can be 18 or 20 years of age and those taking kids will earn big bucks. Those that are going to take in young adults and kids will earn their money to the tune of a $1000 per kid. Obama paid those people thousands of dollars and no body raised a stink. This was and is Taxpayer money. You get the money every month you can show you still have a child, as long as they are less than 18 years of age. They can even go out and work anywhere. They will have SS numbers and the whole thing is swept under the run. Obama did it, so why not Joe and Ho

  7. Would someone explain to me what the hell does the USDA have to do with processing illegals into the US? Last time I checked the USDA had to do with meat not illegals. If the USDA is processing illegals who is making sure are meat is safe Border patrol?

    I am so done with this senile Dictator Joe Biden that they claim is our president and his incompetent VP Kamala Harris. Neither one of them no what they are doing or how to do it. Time for them to go.

  8. What we should do is load these illegals into buses , men, women, and children, bring them to the white house , escort them inside the building and drop them off!!!!!! Maybe that will wake up sleepy joe.

  9. Impeach the whole Biden Admin, They had their chance, and they were incompetent now get rid of them.. Reinstate Donald Thrump.. listen to the people…!!
