This has been reported by multiple sources. Here is one example:

If you want to read the actual document released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, you can see it here.

Edit: Upon re-reading the article I see that the 1.475 was the total as of the end of 2017, not the total for the 2017 calendar year. That's not a material difference, but I thought I'd point it out before anyone attempts to use that subtle distinction to claim that this new policy is anything other than a cruel and inhumane thing to do.
So it's actually not a fact.

That IS a material difference. Especially since your thesis is that this is all new under Trump. Your confusion is a symptom of how bad the reporting on this seems to be. I think you need to rethink this entire thread and your entire understanding of this topic.
