Leaked Documents Reveal Startling Extent of Biden’s Border Crisis


Leaked documents from the Department of Health and Human Services revealed the overwhelming number of child migrants crossing the border and stretching the Biden administration’s resources. In the last week of February, 321 children per day were referred to HHS custody, a sharp jump from the weekly average of 203 in late January and early February, according to documents reviewed by Axios. The HHS had to reopen an emergency shelter in Texas on Feb. 22 and is considering reopening a similarly controversial facility in Florida to try to provide additional housing for the children. The shelter system is already at 94 percent occupancy and is expected to reach maximum occupancy this month. The HHS has also increased the speed with which children are released to caretakers already in the United States, according to the leaked documents. The data shows that an average of 174 children per day were released from HHS custody in the last week of February.
