US government officials are scrambling to find bed space for some 15,500 unaccompanied immigrant children who have poured over the southern border in record numbers.

US Customs and Border Protection officials reported Saturday that more than 5,000 minor immigrants are being held in facilities along the Mexican border — including a make-shift tent facility in southern Texas, CBS News reported.

Nearly 10,500 others are being sheltered in emergency shelters by the Department of Health and Human Services, CBS said.
