A Honduran man attempting to cross the border with an unrelated 6-month-old infant last week underscores what U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents have described as an increasing trend of fraudulent families presenting at the border in order to take advantage of loopholes in immigration laws and avoid being detained by immigration authorities.

Infants are more convenient for these purposes because they can’t talk and tell the truth. Turn a child into an entry ticket, and you guarantee that this starts happening. What’s to prevent every gangster and evildoer from stealing or buying a baby to haul across the border to try and get in claiming to be a terrified parent?
