The federal government has now released 37,477 illegal immigrant juveniles detained at the U.S.-Mexico border this year. They had released 30,304 as of July 7.

Since October of last year, there have been at least 60,000 illegal immigrant juveniles who have been apprehended at the border, and federal officials expect nearly 150,000 more will be detained in the next fiscal year.
