Government Won’t Reunite All Under-5 Children With Parents Before Tuesday Deadline

But, the lawyer says he's disappointed that not all children will see their parents.

Forcing families that have already suffered the vast trauma of being wrenched apart and jailed separately for weeks to wait even longer before they are reunited, the Trump administration is on pace to unify less than half of detained children under five years old with their parents before Tuesday's court-imposed deadline, the ACLU said late Sunday.

Mr. Gelernt, what did the court decide today about these children under five, who should be reunited with their families?

Children are escorted to the Cayuga Center, which provides foster care and other services to immigrant children separated from their families, in New York City, U.S., July 10, 2018.

"But until I have both my children with me, I don't know what I will do", she said.

U.S. Border Patrol agents take a father and son from Honduras into custody near the U.S. -Mexico border, June 12, 2018, near Mission, Texas. The government has said only 3 of the children had accompanying adults that were found to not be their parents.

The separations sparked national and worldwide outrage that crossed party lines and including warnings from health experts that taking children from their parents would incur significant emotional harm.




"It's extremely disappointing that the Trump administration looks like it will fail to reunite even half the children under 5 with their parents". They will be set free in the U.S. pending the outcome of their immigration cases, which can take several years.

On Monday (Tuesday NZT), a federal judge in Los Angeles rejected the Trump administration's efforts to detain immigrant families in long-term facilities, calling it a "cynical attempt to undo a longstanding court settlement".

In ordering an end to the separation of families, the president said they should instead be detained together. She was held in jail for a few days and then was moved to Otero County, N.M., until she arrived at Casa Vides, part of the https://annunciationhouse.org Annunciation House network in El Paso, on June 24. The Trump administration had asked for the court's permission to have ICE keep those families in detention until their cases were adjudicated - a process that typically takes months and would have gone against previously established terms of the settlement. The Trump administration is trying to line up thousands more beds at military bases.

Some attorneys and advocates prepared for Tuesday's (Wednesday NZT) reunions with little information.

The government said it could not fully meet the first deadline because, in some cases, children's parents had already been deported or failed a criminal background check. "Don't come to our country illegally", he said.

The Justice Department also said that only 75 of the 102 children aged four and younger who were supposed to be returned to their parents by Tuesday are eligible for reunification.

The judge additionally asked for an update from the government on the reunification process by Thursday, Bloomberg reported. The ACLU would like a faster reunification process while the USA government claims they are bound by strict protocols, such as a plan to DNA test every child and parent before a reunification can occur.
