A U.S. Senator from California is sponsoring a bill that would let anyone waltz into a holding facility for illegal children and claim them, regardless of the results of a background check.
“[Democrat Sen. Kamala] Harris has signed onto a bill in the Senate, which has a bipartisan House counterpart, that would bar ICE from using information uncovered in a background check to arrest an adult seeking to take in a child,” according to a San Fransisco Chronicle report.
The Chronicle report frames the Trump administration policy of checking the backgrounds of would-be caretakers of illegal children as inhumane, as some of those would-be caretakers are illegals themselves, and as such some have been arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
But the point of the background checks is to protect children from being taken in by undesirables. It is not possible to verify the identity of illegal aliens – only their illegal status – meaning that any old illegal could claim a child by saying that they are are a relative.
That is another fine-print item of the current system.
“The government typically releases [illegal alien] children into the custody of a qualified adult, often a relative,” the report said.
How is that information verifiable without a background check?
The fake news media, in attempting to spin Trump as an evil monster, is aiding Democrats in doing away with safeguards meant to assure that children aren’t taken from holding centers and placed into the hands of strangers, which could lead any number of negative externalities.
The Chronicle report also claimed that most of the illegals who were arrested while attempting to claim a child “had no criminal record.” Apparently, the paper forgot that crossing the border illegally is a crime.
The whole leftist narrative on illegal immigration is a shame. In the interest of upholding the rule of law and keeping children safe from predators, illegal aliens should be background checked before claiming a child, and the whole family should be deported together for breaking the law. That would be a truly “bipartisan” solution to this problem.

Aircraft Carrier Commander Warns of Rapidly Spreading Coronavirus On Ship
There are more than 50 diagnoses on board.
The commander of a US Navy aircraft carrier is requesting urgent guidance from the Pentagon as an outbreak of the Chinese coronavirus spreads among its crew.
Captain Brett Crozier stated that “the spread of the disease is ongoing and accelerating” in a letter to the Secretary of the Navy on Monday. Reports indicate that more than 50 sailors assigned to the ship have been diagnosed with the coronavirus, presenting a serious danger for those currently on board.
Crozier described an urgent situation in his letter to the Pentagon.
“This will require a political solution but it is the right thing to do.” Crozier was calling for means to quarantine the entire crew of his ship away from the vessel. “We are not at war. Sailors do not need to die. If we do not act now, we are failing to properly take care of our most trusted asset — our Sailors.”
“Keeping over 4,000 young men and women on board the TR is an unnecessary risk and breaks faith with those Sailors entrusted to our care.”
The Nimitz-class aircraft carrier is currently docked at a naval base at the Pacific island of Guam. The crew of the ship is quarantined to the vessel on account of the outbreak, although five service members in serious medical conditions were taken to shore.
It’s extremely difficult to practice social distancing aboard the innately close-quarters environment of a naval vessel. The coronavirus has already proven capable of spreading with devastating effect aboard cruise ships, vessels that afford far more personal space to their inhabitants than aircraft carriers.
As of Tuesday night, the Navy is reported to be seeking a solution to quarantine the ship’s four-thousand strong crew at a location away from the Theodore Roosevelt. Sailors may be removed away from the ship in increments, returning after 14-day isolation periods after which they test negative for the disease.
