(ConservativeHub.com) – President Biden started reversing Donald Trump’s immigration policies within hours of being sworn into office. There has been a massive surge of unaccompanied children at the nation’s southern border since then. As one might expect, the Biden administration has not admitted a crisis exists at the border. Curiously, that hasn’t stopped it from asking for help.
Fox News reported on March 28 that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) distributed a memorandum to executive branch department heads asking for volunteers to transfer to the border for up to 120 days to help US Customs and Border Protection officials handle the surge of immigrant children.

Kathleen McGettigan, the OPM’s acting director, confirmed the request. According to her, the volunteers would help the Office of Refugee Resettlement provide care for children to include placement services with temporary housing and foster care placement. The goal is to release the children to parents or other family members quickly.
As of last week, government officials are detaining more than 16,000 unaccompanied children. It’s telling that the Biden administration is seeking volunteers to help handle a border crisis it won’t admit exists.
