More than 700 unaccompanied children were in Border Patrol custody as of Sunday morning, according to an internal Customs and Border Protection document obtained by Axios. It's another sign of President Biden's looming border crisis.

  • Plus, some good news with COVID and nursing homes.
  • And, a turning point in how cities select police chiefs.

More than 700 children who crossed from Mexico into the United States without their parents were in Border Patrol custody as of Sunday, according to an internal Customs and Border Protection document obtained by Axios.

The Biden administration reopened a temporary facility for unaccompanied migrant children in Carrizo Springs, Texas, on Monday, the Washington Post reports.

Why it matters: Officials say the camp is necessary because of an uptick in migrant children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. Meanwhile, the coronavirus pandemic has reduced the federal government's capacity to house children before they can be reunited with sponsors.
