Internal investigators have already dismissed most complaints of civil rights violations against federal agents handling the surge of illegal immigrant children on the border, the Homeland Security Department inspector general said in a new report Thursday that details near-heroic efforts agents and officers are making.
In its first report since the surge, the inspector general said agents have contracted everything from scabies and lice to chickenpox, including bringing the disease home to their own children, as they care for the unaccompanied minors. Investigators also said they saw instances of agents and officers spending their own money to buy toys, clothing and food for children and families.
Of course, the complaints weren't actually from the "children" but from the usual suspects, the "American Civil Liberties Union and other immigrant rights advocates".
They found no evidence of misconduct, and none of the children they randomly interviewed reported problems, the inspector general said.
The inspector general also found difficult conditions dealing with a population not necessarily used to first-world comforts.
The investigators said some illegal immigrants’ “unfamiliarity with bathroom facilities resulted in unsanitary conditions and exposure to human waste” in some of the facilities.
I hope Barky Obama bought enough shovels with citizens' money for mucking out.
