The number of unaccompanied children encountered increased by 4% to 15,271. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is bracing for an ongoing surge of unaccompanied children, expecting to accommodate nearly 161,000 this year, according to The Washington Examiner, which recently obtained federal data on the subject.
