Team Biden is holding seven times more migrant children at the U.S. southern border than the Trump administration did, according to data from the federal government.

Data from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP), reported on March 31, reveals there are 17,641 unaccompanied migrant minors being held in government facilities.

Of those, 12,035 are in the care of HHS and 5,606 in CBP custody.

Under the Trump administration, the largest number of unaccompanied minors being detained at one time was roughly 2,600.
