    Default new border technology

    not what the liberal had in mind I don't think
    this could actually have a big impact to close an often exploited loophole
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Rapid DNA testing at border outs migrant who claimed six-month-old baby was his child

    A 90-minute rapid DNA test is responsible for determining a male migrant and baby who arrived together at the Texas border as a family unit earlier this month were not related, according to an official with first-hand knowledge of events surrounding the incident.

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement launched a pilot program with the system for a handful of days at two locations on the U.S.-Mexico border earlier this month to see if the technology could help agents conclusively confirm or deny whether migrants who claim to be related are in fact family.

    On May 7, Border Patrol agents based in Hidalgo, Texas, watched 51-year-old Amilcar Guiza-Reyes wade through the Rio Grande with an infant. After the pair arrived on U.S. soil, they were taken into custody and brought back to U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Central Processing Center in McAllen, Texas.

    Agents learned Guiza-Reyes had been deported in 2013. He was turned over to ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations agents, who believed he may not have been the father of the child.

    ICE ordered a DNA test of the pair and the man consented to a cheek swab for the two. The swab was run through a machine, which concluded the two were not related.

    The Honduran man admitted the baby's birth certificate was illegitimate. He was charged in federal court in the Southern District of Texas on May 10 with alien smuggling.

    The infant was turned over to the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Refugee Resettlement because the baby is technically an unaccompanied minor.

    The DNA tests were conducted for less than one week on suspicious migrant families taken into custody near McAllen and El Paso, Texas.

    The Washington Examiner reported in March the Department of Homeland Security and ICE were looking at adopting the rapid testing system. On May 1, Homeland Security announced it would launch a pilot of the program in instances where agents could not verify a family unit’s relationships.

    The debut marked the first time DNA testing of any sort has been used at the border. Currently, authorities must use verbal statements and written documents to verify family connections.

    I can see the demotwats screaming now.

    He identified as the stolen kids dad. DNA doesn’t matter he feels that he deserves the kid.
    If he can be a she then he can be the father regardless of science it’s all about how he,she,it identifies.

    That may end up being an excellent tool for rapidly processing people and closing that one loophole. Won't solve the problem, but could cut one part of it off.

    So if I sneak into Mexico undocumented I get arrested..locked up. But they want our boarders to be open.... Japan has it right. They don't let any migrants in. My wife's family said some Africans moved in to a house near them a few years back. They started seeing strange bugs and stuff getting stolen around the neighborhood. The cops showed up and had them pack there **** in about 10 minutes they were gone. Cops hauled them off to the airport.

    Exactly! Even people from northern states that don't have to deal with this every day should see what is happening. Hordes of illegals = hordes of Democrat voters. Don't forget, California was a Red state until 1988, as a matter of fact, the Republicans won California every election from 1952 -1988 (except Goldwater I think). What happened? Hordes of Mexicans. Arizona is getting purple and the way Texas is going (with illegals), they might be in trouble soon too. The day we lose Texas, this nation is done.

    and update on the earlier story
    shows that the illegals have been told about the loophole if 30% of the people tested failed the paternity test.
    Just says to me that someone is telling the how to game the system.
    Hope the word get's South that the loophole is close and if you try to use it you will be locked up as a child smuggler.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    In a pilot program, approximately 30% of rapid DNA tests of immigrant adults who were suspected of arriving at the southern border with children who weren't theirs revealed the adults were not related to the children, an official involved in the system's temporary rollout who asked to be anonymous in order to speak freely told the Washington Examiner Friday.

    In some incidents where Immigration and Customs Enforcement told the adults they would have to take a cheek swab to verify a relationship with a minor, several admitted the child was not related and did not take the DNA test, which was designed by a U.S. company.

    Sounds like a winning policy to me.
