The US government lost track of nearly 1,500 immigrant children, but officials say they are not "legally responsible" for them after they are placed in temporary homes to await the outcome of their asylum cases.

The revelation, made during a congressional hearing last month, comes as officials continue to struggle with the number of minors who make the dangerous trek into the United States, many of them seeking asylum from violence in their home countries.

It also comes amid concerns the Department of Homeland Security is looking to separate children from their parents if they are caught together while trying to cross the border as a form of deterrent.

US agencies have struggled with legal, logistical, and political questions regarding underage immigrants, as thousands of them continue to be detained at the US-Mexico border.

Steven Wagner, acting assistant secretary for the US Department of Health and Human Services' Administration for Children and Families, told a subcommittee in April that officials were unable to determine what happened to 1,475 children who were placed in sponsors' homes between October to December 2017.

Another 28 kids, Wagner told lawmakers, also ran away from the home.

The agency had been attempting to contact 7,635 minors and their sponsors, he said, as part of a routine checkup to look into their safety. More than 19% of them, however, were unaccounted for.

In 2016 Sweden reported that there are 1 829 asylum seeking children that have disappeared, that they have no idea about their whereabouts. About 40 kids per month disappear and I'm pretty sure US and Sweden are the only places this goes on. There may be some trafficking element to this.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

Trafficking goes on everywhere but some countries don't even bother to report statistics.

They encourage it as they send billions of dollars back home every year.

And that is just another reason to put a stop to it.

Trafficking goes on all over Europe. It's covered up and has been for a very long time.
