Release Date: May 3, 2021

DHS and HHS were left to rebuild the capacity to shelter and process the children, after having inherited a system that had been entirely dismantled by the prior administration.

Note: DHS has reduced the number of unaccompanied children in CBP custody by 88% since March 28, 2021.
