Federal data shows few Central America migrant kids in New Hampshire


CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Federal data shows that the U.S. government has placed fewer than 100 migrant children from Central America who have entered the United States without their parents in Northern New England since the fall of 2013.

The federal government says it has placed 60 unaccompanied minors from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras with relatives and other sponsors in New Hampshire. A total of 24 were placed in Maine, and five were placed in Vermont.

The data shows the government has placed nearly 104,000 unaccompanied minors with adult sponsors in communities nationwide, where they are expected to attend school while they seek legal status in immigration court.
