According The New York TimesQAnon supporters intercepted migrant children at the border with Mexico, then compiled information on their relatives in the United States

In this process of having them here, we ask them to call their sponsors. And we start this information, this research. Once we get that information, we sometimes fool them We tell them we’re sending a care package We get the address and we tear it up, man Frank told the podcast that he had two missions, to intercept the drugs and save the children He said he worked with the militia group, Veterans on Patrol.
