    12,800 Immigrant Children Are Currently Being Detained by the U.S. Government

    A Record-High 12,800 Immigrant Children Are Currently Being Detained by the U.S. Government, Report Says

    By GLENN FLEISHMAN 8:34 PM EDT

    Nearly 12,800 immigrant children are currently being detained by the U.S. government, a record-high figure spread across 100 federally contracted shelters that is five times higher than the amount held in May 2017, the New York Times is reporting.

    While the figure is only somewhat higher than numbers reported earlier this year, 2,500 of those children arrived with their families and were separated under a new Trump administration policy.

    The remaining children in custody arrived as unaccompanied minors. More than 2,000 of those separated children have since been reunited with their families after a judge issued an injunction in June.

    About 500 remain in shelters, alongside at least 12,000 other children who have arrived in the United States on their own.

    By the numbers, that means that potentially 3,000 new unaccompanied minors have been detained by the U.S. government in the past few months, and have not been released.


    The rapid growth in numbers since summer—and the massive increase since May 2017—also may relate to delays in vetting family members or sponsors to whom the children could be released.

    Since June, the government has put new policies in place requiring fingerprinting for family members and sponsors who agree to be responsible for the children when they are released.

    This process has increased delays and deterred those who would retrieve children, as many who would claim the children are undocumented themselves, and the government has said it will release that information to immigration authorities.


    Just days ago, the Trump administration said it would change a long-standing settlement related to holding children for longer than 20 days in detention by restructuring its facilities to hold entire families for unlimited periods. The policy is likely to face challenges in court.


    The number of unaccompanied minors entering the U.S. without documentation has remained about the same, according to data provided to the Times, representing a significant failure in the government’s effort to dissuade immigration without authorization.


    The government’s system of federally-contracted shelters is at 90 percent capacity, while the Trump administration plans to expand an expensive tent city in Texas that costs several times the amount of fixed shelters.

    Critics of detention policies cite a system stretched to its limits that put children through trauma and potentially subject to violence.


    The newspaper obtained these immigration figures from members of Congress. The Trump administration had not separately released figures.

    Get them out of here, returned to their home countries in custody of their own governments. Are you people out of your minds keeping these children in the United States at our expense? What is wrong with you? GET THEM OUT OF HERE.

    Tell their home governments to come pick them up at their nearest Consulates within 24 hours.

    WE DO NOT WANT THEM RELEASED ON OUR SOIL...WE DO NOT WANT TO PAY FOR THEM!

    Holding them for unlimited periods is ridiculous. Get those newly arrived illegal aliens in a hearing before 20 days if necessary and send them back. The outcome of hearings depends on who hears the case. No open border individuals should be making decisions.

    It is not encouraging to hear about the continuing surge of illegal aliens, many who are bringing a child, any child, to gain entry and then finding a Border Patrol agent to present themselves. Trojan Horse scam.

    How about securing the borders. We have monies for just about anything the government wants to spend funds on yet we cannot get a wall on the southern border or a Congress to say yes indeed. It should have been built decades ago. No real will. Too many making a killing, sometimes literally, off of open borders.
