The White House has vowed to investigate reports that migrant children were forced to remain on board buses overnight as they waited to be re-located away from the border. Biden press secretary Jen Psaki called it “outrageous” and vowed to probe “how we got to this point, how this possibly happened”. According to US media, the children used the toilet and ate aboard the bus. It comes amid an unprecedented influx in migrant children to US facilities. In March, a record-breaking almost 19,000 unaccompanied migrant minors entered the US through the southern border.
