US Reunites Some Migrants With Parents

The judge issued his order in connection with a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union challenging the separations.

Parents in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody "for the most part" are being taken to locations near their children and the families will be released, Justice Department attorney Sarah Fabian said in court.

The Trump administration said it had reunited all eligible migrant children under 5 with their parents by Thursday, but dozens remain separated because of safety concerns.

Sabraw told the government Tuesday to "streamline" the vetting process for parents, noting that they had crossed the border with their children.

Their departments were responsible for the reunifications after the administration chose to separate the children from their families under President Donald Trump's hardline "zero tolerance" immigration crackdown. The ICE official said it was because those parents had already paid smugglers and coyotes to get the child to the U.S.

Another 24 children were not eligible because parents were in custody for other criminal offences, officials were unable to locate them or they had already been deported back to their country of origin.

Almost two weeks after a judge ordered officials to reunite the families they'd split up, we only have a handful of anecdotal examples of kids and parents being brought back together.

The 46 children will remain in the care of Health and Human Services, which will continue to seek to place them with a sponsor, such as other family members or even foster care, as it does for the more than 10,000 other minors who arrived in the USA without a relative.

It wasn't immediately clear how many children remained in detention facilities.

DHS and HHS said in a statement that 46 parents were ultimately found to be ineligible to be reunited with their children at this time, of 103 kids under 5 whom the government found to be covered by the court order. Unaccompanied children, some as young as 1 year old, have been kept in large chain link cages, and in some cases, forced to represent themselves in court. One parent was suspected of child abuse; another was living in a household with another adult who had an outstanding warrant for criminal sexual abuse of a minor. At the same time, a little over a quarter of the separated children under 5 could not be reunited because the adults they arrived with were found to have serious criminal histories or no relation to the children or because they are now being held in criminal custody. The administration missed the deadline and only guaranteed the reunification of 38 children. Many of those who had left the country without their child, they claimed, had done so because leaving the child in the United States had been their intended goal.

Mr Ortiz said he was separated from his three-year-old son Andre for three months and refused to go back to Guatemala unless he could take his son.

The distance between many children and their parent or parents have been coupled with logistical challenges and resulted in a major bureaucratic snag.

The court-ordered deadline was July 10. The order provided the administration with 15 days to reunite children under the age of 5 and 30 days to reunite all others. Eleven children's parents were also in custody for other alleged criminal offenses.

The Trump administration said it has completed its reunification process of separated migrant children under the age of 5, with 46 deemed ineligible to be reunited with their parents. The U.S. government is in the process of contacting the 12 adults who were deported and working with foreign consulates in an effort to return their children to them, the officials said. "I just want to say that whatever the court does, we are engaging in an exercise to uphold the law".
