This article, written from a Fox News perspective, reports on the deaths of 12 teenage workers in the United States since 2017, highlighting how most of these workers are foreign-born unaccompanied minors.
The article claims that the federal government, led by President Biden and his pro-migration Labor Department, is not trying to protect Americans from cheap imported workers.
Instead, the government has been quietly welcoming child workers, dubbed “Unaccompanied Alien Children” (UAC), to work in the United States since 2008.
According to the report, the UAC pipeline was shut down by President Trump in 2020 after the arrival of more than 400,000 children and teenagers, amid fierce establishment opposition.
However, in 2021, President Biden restarted the pipeline and has imported more than 320,000 UACs, most of whom are seeking jobs.
The article claims that many of these child workers are injured as they work to pay off high-interest smuggling debts and support their families.
They work in industries such as dairy farming and construction and often try to avoid federal safety inspectors and seek new jobs if they are excluded by worried employers.
Despite the large scale and deliberate nature of this child abuse, GOP legislators are said to be strangely silent about the Democrats’ child-worker scandals. This is speculated to be because the GOP does not want to antagonize business donors by spotlighting the widespread use of illegal child workers.
It is said that one staffing firm that supplied children to meatpackers is owned by the Blackstone investment firm, which donated $34 million to the GOP as it backed candidates who oppose popular migration curbs in the run-up to the 2022 elections.
In conclusion, the article highlights the Democrats’ child-worker scandals and how the federal government has been quietly welcoming child workers into the country since 2008, even under the Biden administration.
It also criticizes the GOP for their silence on this issue, suggesting that they are avoiding the political opportunity to shame and embarrass Democrats because they do not want to antagonize business donors.
