Grassley Implores Administration, Media to Shine Light on Child Exploitation at Southern Border

At a Senate Judiciary Committee meeting Tuesday, Senator Chuck Grassley, a senior committee member, expressed concern about the lack of public outcry being paid to child exploitation at the southern U.S. border. In particular, Grassley pressed for more resources and public awareness to address child recycling: the practice of smuggling young children back and forth across the border to help unrelated adults appear as a “family unit” so they get special treatment when entering the country.
