The US is seeing an สล็อตเอ็กซ์โอ influx of migrants arriving at the southern border, including thousands of children who are being kept in government-run detention facilities that critics say are inhumane.
A pandemic health order means that most adults are being summarily turned away, but the Biden administration has allowed unaccompanied children under the age of 18 to enter the US while their claims are processed.
The record breaking influx of children being held in these camps has led US officials to send in the Federal Emergency Management Agency - a government organisation that normally deals with major emergencies like natural disasters.
How many children are being detained?
As of 14 March, US Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents were housing 4,200 children in detention centres.
The uptick is a 31% jump from less than a week earlier, when 3,200 migrant children - mostly from Central America - were reported to be held in US custody. The number of children kept over the three-day limit more than doubled in that time.
Department of Homeland Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has said these camps, which are often compared to jails or warehouses, are "no place for a child".
Almost 3,000 children have been kept for over 72 hours, the legal limit after which they are meant to be transferred to the custody of health officials in the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR).
What are conditions like?
While in office, President Donald Trump faced outrage over the conditions inside border facilities holding children. He also drew condemnation for his "zero tolerance" policy - which saw migrant children separated from their parents after crossing into the US.
Hundreds of children separated under the cancelled policy have yet to be reunited with their families.
