In the United States or to a guardian appointed by the state.
From the beginning of October
to the end of January, the US authorities took up around 54,000 children and their education workers.
This is more than twice as many as in the prior-year period. A US Federal Court of Justice ordered in July that the children of illegal immigrants must be released as soon as possible. This does not apply to their parents.
Currently, intercepted families are released relatively quickly and may remain in the US until their case has been decided.
