( – On Thursday a federal watchdog released a report that showed that the federal administration had struggled with properly vetting and monitoring the homes that migrant children were being placed in because of the increase in migrant crossings across the Southern border. 

The Department of Health and Human Services is responsible for screening all adults who volunteer to have children placed in their homes if they arrive in the United States without their parents. However, according to the study the department had failed to complete basic safety checks, including checking the adults’ criminal background and address. According to the report about a third of the cases that the federal watchdog had reviewed did not include the proper documentation for the adults. 

HHS Office of Inspector General, who was responsible for the review, analyst Haley Lubeck noted that they had found that a lot of the records had not been updated to include important information and documentation. 

In response to the report, the federal health agency argued that it has since that time bettered the process and that the report was only looking at a small number of the cases that the agency had handled. HHS also pointed out that they had introduced new training that all employees handling migrant children were required to complete. 

HHS spokesman Jeff Nesbit pointed out that an overwhelming majority of the findings addressed documentation issues that the agency had improved already through the training and monitoring technology. 

This latest report comes at a time when the Biden administration has had to deal with a lot of criticism regarding the immigration policies they had followed.
