Biden Admin Released 8K Unaccompanied Migrant Children in December

By Randy Clark | Breitbart

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released 7,837 unaccompanied migrant children to domestic sponsors in December 2021. Nearly 10,000 are still detained and await similar transfers.

In December, HHS released 252 children against another 275 apprehended near border crossing points daily on average — showing little relief on rolling detention totals. The December figure is a sharp decline from the a high of 18,954 apprehended in July.

According to HHS, the numbers do not include children from Mexico. In most cases, those are immediately returned.
