    Yes. Although someone pointed out that I had conflated two awful issues that are happening at the same time. The 1500 missing came here as unaccompanied minors. That doesn't make it any better to me.

    Nonetheless, it’s still shocking that even one of those minors was released into the custody of child traffickers, KO.

    Agree completely. I am trying to find out if any of these kids have been reported as missing. Right now, it doesn't seem like they have. If they haven't, i think we really need to pressure the government to do so.

    Great comment you have made, Stunned.
    Now in the Open, so surely such incidents will be avoided, and an Investigation is required.
    No more 'head in the sand'.

    Not in the open as it should be. This should be every news programs (well let’s be honest, except for one) opening. Where is the outrage?

    Have there been any reports from LE of any testing done on Jacob, like isotope tests to see if they can work out in which area he's likely to have lived?

    As for the 'missing' children from the illegal immigration, I would hope they have at least got photographs and other identification data. Maybe that data should be shared with Namus or an organization like that so that any UIDs can be compared with the list and the date of arrival.

    I'm sure that the ORR has that information since they have been able to figure out how many they have lost. I also thought that their information should be shared with Namus, but it's been pointed out that if the children have gone underground out of fear, then that could place them in more danger. Right now, I think it might make sense to ask the other agencies who are involved in Jacobs case (FBI, etc.) To contact the ORR and ask them if they match.

    That seems like a sensible option. Many of the unaccompanied minors are young teens who are fleeing gang violence or enforced sexual servitude in their home country. So awful that they came here in hope and then got turned over to the same kinds of people.

    I wonder if it wasn't one of those babies lost when they were removed from their parents by ICE. I know there was some discussion but I keep wondering, how wold we ever find out? :(
