They led HHS to hire members who lacked child welfare practices and also knowledge.

Due to the large caseloads, high rates of turnover and the inexperience of workers, hundreds of lone children housed at the HHS tent camp in Fort Bliss 

This caused a situation where many children waited weeks for response and which created anxiety and panic attacks. 

A worker stated that a distress migrant girl cut herself in front of other children after knowing that case managers didn't speak to her parents. 

Later, some reported that the children had limited access to shower, clean clothes and good food.
