Sinn Féin has said that the Direct Provision system is no place to have children.
The party has renewed its calls for the entire scheme to be scrapped, following a HIQA report which has raised grave concerns about the welfare of youngsters being raised in these centres.
The document says over 14% of children in Direct Provision in the course of one year have been referred to the child and family agency.
That compares to an average of just over 1% in the general population.
Sinn Féin's Padraig MacLochlainn has said that it is just not good enough.
"We recently completed a report into the system," said Mr MacLochlainn.
"And what we're seeing now collectively - in the HIQA report, in our report, and through the working group which is to report soon - is repeated evidence that the direct provision system is no place to have children."
