Oversight of Unaccompanied Alien Children 3

We conducted three unannounced site visits to two CBP facilities. We also conducted two unannounced site visits to the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) in Artesia, New Mexico. Since we initiated our site visits in July 2014, CBP has improved its capacity to provide care to UAC if apprehension levels again increase. Specifically, CBP improved its capacity to provide medical screening, facility cleaning, food service, and case processing for large groups of UAC. However, the DHS Office of Health Affairs and CRCL continue to work with CBP to improve training, policies and procedures on screening aliens for communicable diseases and processing UAC appropriately.
