President Joe Biden’s administration is focused on “educational services” for migrant youth arriving at the United States-Mexico border even as millions of American children remain shut out of the classroom due to lockdowns.
In a press briefing on Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the administration is working to “ensure” that Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) arriving at the southern border are provided “educational services” and “health services.”
“These unaccompanied children who come across the border … we want to keep safe; we want to ensure they are in shelters where there is access to educational services, legal services, health services,” Psaki said. “We want to ensure that they are then quickly moved to vetted families and sponsor homes.”
