President Joe Biden is calling on Congress to approve millions of dollars from U.S. taxpayers to help eliminate migrant child labor trafficking that began under his watch due to lax enforcement of federal laws on immigration.
Biden’s budget request to Congress provides $100 million to help the Department of Labor investigate child labor — primarily labor trafficking of unaccompanied alien children (UAC) that has become a problem major for the administration.
This request is in effect an admission by the Biden administration that the UAC labor trafficking network needs millions of dollars in additional funding to cripple the network of smugglers and traffickers.
Coincidentally, the UAC labor trafficking network has flourished under Biden’s leadership.
For months, top officials at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) have been pressed by Congress to say that tens of thousands of migrant children have not been heard from since the federal government resettled with adult sponsors across the United States, the majority of whom are not their biological parents.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) has repeatedly questioned the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) about the tens of thousands of missing UACs with whom the federal government lost contact after they were resettled with adult sponsors.
Blackburn has yet to get any answers on this.
An explosive report from the Department of Labor found that between October 2022 and July 2022, there was a 44% increase in the number of children found working in U.S. jobs.
Labor trafficking has become so significant among UACs at the hands of their adult sponsors that Labor Department officials said they were working with Mexico and Central American countries to “educate the communities of migrants” on child labor laws in the United States.
In August, the Department of Labor’s Inspector General (IG) announced an investigation into the agency’s treatment of UAC victims of labor trafficking after their release within the United States.
Since Biden took office, more than 300,000 UACs have been placed with adult sponsors across the United States, but whistleblowers have warned that HHS is not properly vetting these sponsors and that migrant children are found in labor trafficking, sex trafficking and domestic servitude. result.
