In April 2019, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) began the Family Fraud Initiative in El Paso to identify individuals fraudulently showing themselves as families including kids who aren’t theirs, to make asylum and be released into the United States. Since April, the Family Fraud initiative has discovered: Trafficking Kids
238 fraudulent families identified; 329 false documents seized that were used to support fraudulent claims; more than 350 individuals federally prosecuted for various crimes, including human smuggling, making false statements, conspiracy, and illegal re-entry after removal; and 50 individuals identified who have fraudulently claimed to be unaccompanied minors.
