US to give migrants DNA tests to prove family tiesUS border authorities plan to give migrant families DNA tests to determine whether or not the adults and children are related, Department of Homeland Security officials said Wednesday. A “Rapid DNA” test program is being launched in several places along the US-Mexico frontier, where tens of thousands of undocumented migrants have been crossing the border each month, many in family units asking for asylum. “We know the problem we are seeing, we know these are fraudulent family units,” an official said on condition of anonymity.
