The Biden administration is housing tens of thousands of migrant children seeking asylum in about 200 facilities, according to confidential data obtained by The Associated Press. The number of children in government custody has more than doubled in the last two months, now totaling close to 21,000. The facilities where the children are being held include at least a dozen unlicensed emergency facilities inside military bases, stadiums and convention centers that sidestep regulations and oversight. Attorneys, advocates and mental health experts say while some of the shelters are safe and provide necessary care, others are putting children’s health and safety in danger.
