WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)– New data shows the White House has painted a false picture of the Central American migration by hiding a huge spike in "family units" who are illegally crossing the Texas border, according to the Daily Caller.
In the Rio Grande area where most of the migrants are crossing the border, the number of so-called “unaccompanied children” was actually outnumbered by the inflow by adults, parents and children in "family units," according to the data.
The much-faster growth in "family units" has been hidden by White House and agency officials, who have tried to portray the influx as a wave of children fleeing abuse and violence.
White House officials also touted the wave of so-called "unaccompanied children," and downplayed the "family units," because they wished to focus the media's attention on a supposed problem caused by a 2008 law, titled the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act. — Source
