Record number of migrant children held at US-Mexico border

Record number of migrant children held at US-Mexico border 1

 

The number of unaccompanied migrant children in US Border Patrol facilities, which are akin to jail cells and not intended for kids, has reached dramatic highs, according to internal agency documents reviewed by CNN, underscoring the urgent challenge facing the Biden administration.
More than 3,200 unaccompanied migrant children were in Customs and Border Protection custody, according to the documents dated Monday. Of those, around 2,600 were awaiting placement in shelters suitable for minors, but there were just over 500 beds available to accommodate them.
The latest data comes on the heels of a trip to the US-Mexico border by senior administration officials to assess the situation on the ground amid an increasing number of arrests and indicates a rapidly increasing trend of unaccompanied children coming into the US. Less than a week ago, there were around 1,700 children in Border Patrol custody.

    I guess people don’t realize the consequences of their words. Biden promised these people something he couldn’t deliver, again. Are you Biden supporters regretting your steal yet?

      @fish bone It shouldn’t be our problem call me heartless but those kids need to go find their way somewhere else it’s a bad time to be letting people in because of COVID anyways.

      @fish bone or promised things for free! It seems a lot just want a hand out! We are getting closer to becoming a socialist country! Crazy for the people who do work, because we will be paying for it all!

  4. The bar was set so low for this administration, and they still found a way to trip all over it. 😑

    • The bar was placed underground for this administration and they dug deep enough just to trip over it

      no, the major problems at the border had been mostly solved after the surge in 2019 when activists and media were donating tens of Millions$ encouraging kids to take 50/50 odds u die death march through central America, so Trump made deal with mexico to keep all asylum seekers from central america in mexico. If they were supposed to be “fleeing” danger in their country why cant they stay in mexico? Well, turns out they’re not in danger they just want better jobs, our jobs actually. since then the number of crossing/sex trafficking/drug smuggling/ETC have all gone down drastically and with the wall growing every day, they border situation wasnt a big deal anymore.
      THEN, a totally legit election happened in which 200+ year old Bell-Weather counties( counties which for over 200 years choose the correct president as theyre the closely represent the nation in demographics etc.) Of the 21 remaining BELL-WEATHER COUNTIES ALL BUT ONE VOTED FOR TRUMP AND THEY DID SO WITH OVER 60% VOTES! But, the Gov more corrupt than we thought and along with media and useful TEACHERS UNION MEMBERS WHO HAPPEN TO WORK TO POLLING STATIONS WHICH IS WHY BIDEN HAS GIVEN THEM EVERYTHING THEY WANT AND WAAAY MORE!
      Abyway, THAT WAS JUST ONE GREAT POLICY TRUMP MADE TO HELP THIS NATION ALONG WITH PULLING TROOPS OUT OF MIDDLE EAST WITH MULTIPLE MIDEAST PEACE DEALS AND WHATS THE FIRST THING joe biden does in office? destroy border SECURITY, stopped wall construction THATS ALREADY PAID FOR, HE’S LITERALLY THROWING BILLIONS AWAY ON THAT AND DESTROYING THE SOLID PEACE DEALS THAT WERE BEEING OBEYED FOR THE FIRST TIME BY TALIBAN! But joe cant have that, he got 20 $ million+ from lockheed this camaign and raytheon Board member in his cabinet! THIS IS BY FAR THE MOST CORRUPT ADMINISTRATION AMERICA HAS EVER KNOWN AND ITS ONLY BEGINNING! THEYRE GOING TO START A CIVIL WAR GUARENTEED WITH THE INSANE BS THEYRE PASSING AND I THINK THATS WHAT THESE SICK PEOPLE WANT. IS THAT WHAT YOU ALL WANT? CUZ WE CERTAINLY DONT BUT WE ARE PREPARED…
      START BUYING HARD METALS, BITCOIN, GUNS/AMMUNITION CUZ ITS LIKELY TO GET UGLY…!
      MOST KIDS COMING IN WITH THEIR “FAMILIES” ARE BEING TRAFFICKED!! THATS WHY THEY ARE SEPERATED!
      GET OVER “ORANGE MAN BAD”, HE’S NOT IN CUZ CNN VIEWERS DONT UNDERSTAND THEY ARE WATCHING PROPAGANDA!
      LOL FOOLS STILL CANT SEE HOW LIED TO YOU ARE! WAKE UP LIBERALS, UR PARTY HAS BEEN OVERRUN BY COMMUNISTS AND UR TURNING INTO THEM TOO!!! YOU WERE TOLD THIS FOR 4 YEARS, BUT NO NO BELIEVE THE CORPORATE MEDIA WHOSE ONLY GOALS ARE PROFITS. NO PRINCIPALS WHATSOEVER!

  5. By now CNN should be able to fit both feet in their mouth.

    Trump turned everyone away, Biden is mostly leaning on that policy as they put it except they are taking in “unaccompanied” children? Isn’t that separating children from their families? Like AOC screamed about for a year. And they won’t let cameras inside the cages that Joe built 😂

    • bobsaget0429 | March 14, 2021 at 1:10 PM | Reply

      sounds like they are taking children in that are already separated from their family and aren’t the ones actively ripping the families apart. which is a huge difference.

    • @bobsaget0429 “sounds like” you should prove it🤣
      which is a huge difference

    • @bobsaget0429 sounds like you are a hypocrite….. call it for what it is instead of defending it

      @lesmo whomever THese kids are still separated form parents and in cages. And why wont the WH allow the media to examine the inside of these “shipping containers” with bars on tiny windows? Where is the transparency that was promised by Biden? Where is AOC? Why isn’t she at the border right now crying about the deplorable conditions that these children have to endure? Ohhhhh that’s right. Cuz now Biden is in the WH and MAmma Bear Pelosi would swat AOC and yell” BAd girl!” So AOC , the hypocrite, now stays silent.

      @Brandon Bernard The Repubs have nothing else to offer so they have thrown you the Brownie immigration bone knowing you will gnaw on it. Most of the “illegals” that come from Mexico come in legally and don’t leave. A report says 11.1 million illegal white Europeans are in America and tons of Canadians and Asians. When you play the racist border shell game you lose and will never find the pea. You need mo’ edumacation.

    • Brandon Bernard | March 21, 2021 at 2:53 PM | Reply

      @lesmo whomever LOL! So there is no crisis at the border then? Everything is fine. Then why have they had to move illegal alien children to a huge facility in Dallas? At least be honest and not hypocritical. You know that if Trump was still in office the likes of AOC and Omar and the rest of the Squad would be screaming about the deplorable conditions this illegal alien kids have to endure. But we do not hear a peep from AOC. Why is that?
      And see? If you comment on the current crisis at the border , then you are “racist.” The new catch phrase from the LEft. This border policy has been a complete disaster for Biden. And he knows it.

      @n k well if you’ve been through crisis with immigrants like I have you would see my point of view waiting to come here is fair all my family had to wait to come and do their dues to get here so should they and yes I have well English words but my roots in America run really deep

    • @Patricia Burnam seeking asylum/refuge is different than moving for economic reasons. We’re legally and morally obligated to accept asylum seekers

      They simply wanna handover power to kamala. Biden will soon resign…that’s the plan. That’s why they’re reporting it

    • @kelvin steam right, the job he’s dreamed of since he was in grade school he’s just going to step down from to give the reigns to someone who is way more progressive than him

    • @kid sniffing biden yeah it’s weird how the numbers have gone up since we started allowing in asylum seekers again, or taking unaccompanied minors into custody instead of just kicking them out… it’s almost like you have no clue what you’re talking about lol

    • Trump tried to warn us but no one listened

    • @Josh Pgh there were two types of Latinos who hated trump. The undocumented who did not benefit from his policies because it meant deportation and the other legal Latinos who felt like they might loose their slave pool

  13. By the time CNN picks up these “news” stories, it’s actually called history.

    • @boris jankovici who in their right mind still watches CNN for credible news ? There is only a few shows left I watch on fox ..mainstream is a joke!

    • @John there is something going on now where Democrats are trying to gain full control over the media ..people just eat this crap up they dish out …it’s sad that so many ignorant people are in America voting the very people who will destroy our future!

    • @boris jankovici Trump did many things about it ….it was the 1st time in history that Border Patrol endorsed a candidate !

  17. But they’re not in “cages”. They are only being held in “detention facilities”!!!!! Sort of like jails, but not cages!!
