The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) says it has a “zero-tolerance” policy for any kind of abuse or harassment of child migrants, amid allegations of child abuse at a facility in San Antonio, Texas.
“HHS takes its humanitarian mission seriously and while unaccompanied migrant children are in our care under the law, we strive to provide a safe space while they go through immigration proceedings,” the agency said in a statement. “HHS has a zero-tolerance policy for all forms of sexual abuse, sexual harassment, and inappropriate sexual behavior at all UC care provider facilities.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Texas welfare officials said Wednesday they received three reports of abuse and neglect at the Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio. The site holds more than 1,300 migrant children — one of a number of sites set up to handle a surge in migrants in recent months.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has called for this location to be closed by the federal government. He believes the allegations come from a person on the inside of the facility. The allegations range from sexual abuse, COVID-positive migrants mixed with healthy migrants, not enough staff to handle the amount of people and people not eating.
Abbott said, “The Biden administration opened the borders and failed to plan for the influx of unaccompanied children crossing the border, and now we are faced with our worst fears — allegations of child abuse and neglect.”
Abbott tweeted Thursday, “Biden opened the borders & failed to plan for the influx of unaccompanied minors. Now he must respond to allegations of child abuse & neglect on his watch. DPS & TX Rangers are investigating. The administration must close the facility & protect these children.”

Ted Cruz has also criticized the administration on their handling of this situation. In a statement to Fox News, Cruz said, “The allegations of horrific abuse of children in the custody of the Biden administration are tragic. We need to immediately get to the bottom of what is happening to these children and President Biden needs to step up and address the driving factor behind this — his crisis at the southern border.”
