CBP repeats misleading claim about aid to migrants, free transport at the southern border
Customs and Border Protection has repeated a misleading claim that says the U.S. is not providing financial aid, including transportation, for migrants at the border.
The notice is similar to previous notices put out by the U.S. government. The claim that the U.S. is not directly providing financial assistance and/or free transportation to migrants is technically true. Adult migrants who are encountered by Border Patrol are processed and released into the U.S. and are not given money or transport directly by the U.S. government. A key exception is unaccompanied children (UAC), who are often transported to sponsors -- typically a parent or relative already in the U.S. -- across the country after they have been transferred from Border Patrol to the care of Health and Human Services (HHS). Adam Shaw is a politics reporter for Fox News Digital, primarily covering immigration and border security.
However, the tweet also leaves out the close cooperation between the U.S. government and non-governmental organizations. Migrants are often released directly to NGOs who help migrants reach their destination, including by helping them with transport, and who are given funding by the federal government.
