After an over three-year delay on a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, government watchdog group Judicial Watch finally received pertinent documents from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) regarding Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) processed by the Obama administration. The documents reveal that migrant minors allowed into the U.S. under Obama’s tenure included admitted drug smugglers, murderers, MS-13 members, and prostitutes.
