(London Daily Mail) Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Wednesday that young female migrants traveling north to the United States are raped with such regularity that Immigration and Customs Enforcement gives every girl age 10 and over a pregnancy test after arriving.
'Very unfortunately, because of the increase in violence, at ICE, when we have families with children, we have to give every girl a pregnancy test over 10. This is not a safe journey,' Nielsen told the House Homeland Security Committee.
Doctors Without Borders reported in 2017 that '68.3 percent of the migrant and refugee populations entering Mexico' from Central America 'reported being victims of violence during their transit toward the United States.'
