SHOW TRANSCRIPT

The Biden administration is trying to deal with an escalating situation at the border and more Americans are losing patience.

According to a new Associated Press and NORC poll, only about a quarter of Americans approve of the president's handling of unaccompanied migrant children detained at the border.

40% said they disapprove and a third said they don't have an opinion. And Americans are also split on the best path of action.

Nearly six in 10 say providing safe treatment of those children is a "high priority" for the federal government. About a third said it's a moderate priority and about 10% said it was low one.
