Are these children and families eligible for public benefits?

No. Only certain immigrants with certain statuses are eligible for public benefits.  Unaccompanied Minors and families separated at the border are not eligible for public benefits until their asylum case is approved. This can take 2-4 years! They are not allowed to work until their asylum case is approved. Any child in the United States has the right to public education, grades K-12.
