Democratic officials called a situation in which U.S. Customs and Border Protection prevented three minors from roaming Chicago unaccompanied “kidnapping” and “troubling,” despite a law requiring the agency do so.

An “adult female” was traveling with three children, ages 9, 10 and 13, Thursday from Mexico to Chicago. The female was deemed “inadmissible” by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers, CBP told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

The article goes on to state the following:

The children were held at the Chicago O’Hare airport for more than 12 hours until a guardian picked them up. The adult female is the children’s cousin, WBEZ reported. The cousin and children’s names were not reported, and neither was the cousin’s age.

“CBP was doing everything in their power to unite these children and their parents instead of turning them over to Child Protective Services,” a CBP spokesperson told the DCNF.

WBEZ reported:

Initially, activists decried the move to hold the children. Some claimed that federal officials were setting a trap for their parents.

“This is yet another example of the abusive practices and disregard of the law,” said Ruiz-Velasco, who said she was notified of the situation by the Mexican Consulate. “They have three U.S. citizen young girls detained, causing trauma and harm to this family and our communities.”

While awaiting a resolution, some activists created signs at the airport to show support for the family. “Don’t make children hostages,” one sign read. “Let the children go,” read another sign.

“There are false reports circulating that CBP is detaining 3 US citizen children at O’Hare,” CBP tweeted. “The children arrived with a Mexican citizen that was deemed inadmissible. By law, they could only be released to a parent/legal guardian. Their mother has picked them up without incident.”
