Given the present national shortage, Republicans are pressuring Biden’s administration to distribute infant formula to migrants.

Children who entered the country illegally are required by law to receive food and medical care from the government of the United States.

As a result of an ongoing situation with infant formula, Republican lawmakers and officials are exerting pressure on the Biden administration to disclose the total amount of formula that is being distributed to illegal immigrants.


If children of illegal immigrants are being held by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at the border or if they are being cared for by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as unaccompanied migrant children (UACs), the United States government is legally obligated to take care of and feed those children (HHS).
