GOP REP PRESENTS DRAFT LAW FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF DNA TESTING AT THE BORDER, WARN OFFICIALS IN FRONT OF THE CHILD RECYCLING’
“It is appalling that children said victims of human trafficking at our southern border,” Blackburn said in a statement. “With the confirmation of a familial connection between an alien and an accompanying minors, we can determine whether or not the child brought over the border by an adult with nefarious intentions. The current crisis on our border is multifaceted and requires a holistic approach. By addressing these problems, piece by piece, we will have this situation under control.”
A companion bill last month was introduced in the house by Rep. Lance Gooden, R-Texas, and comes amid growing concern by Republicans and the border officials that the rules limiting how long families can be taken into custody, lead to child trafficking and a recurring “catch-and-release” situation on the border.
In 1997 Flores-of-court settlement limited, as long as unaccompanied children can be held for up to 20 days. In the year 2016, a court ruled that the limit also applies to minors accompanied by adults. Last month, the Trump administration announced that it is seeking to scrap the Treaty-although, this is likely to be a fierce legal challenge.
Government officials criticized Flores as an immigration gap, which helps to draw immigrant families from Central America-as well as adults who bring children with them, in order to have a better chance of being published in the United States.

Both the house and Senate bills require deportation for all the adults who refuse to take a DNA test, and submit a maximum of 10 years imprisonment for each of the fraudulent claims, contact with a minor. The bill also punishment, “child-recycling”, in which a child independent migrants ‘ access to the United States
Tests in the mouth swab similar to those already in use by the State Department. The Agency says such tests are 99.5% accurate.
The bill is likely to face better prospects in the Republican-controlled Senate than in the house, where the Democratric majority has shifted more and more to the left on the issue of enforcement against illegal immigrants.
