Migrant Kids in Government Foster Care Say They’ve Been Sexually Abused, Says Report

Originally published by The Daily Beast

Some migrant children separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexican border say they have been sexually molested in government-funded foster care, according to a report by the Associated Press. The 38 claims of mistreatment seen by the AP show that taxpayers will likely have to pay damages of more than $200 million to parents who said their children were abused in U.S. custody. One of the complaints from the Cayuga Centers in New York alleges that a little girl was forced to touch another child’s genitalia and kiss her on the lips. Another of the claims alleges that a young girl was sexually assaulted by an older boy who was also detained.
