As Government Misses Reunification Deadline, It's Told to Pick Up the Pace

Trump admin releases names of children under 5 separated at border Less Than Half of The Separated Immigrant Toddlers Will be Reunited By Tomorrow's Deadline

San Diego Judge Dana Sabraw on Monday gave the government more time to reunite the 102 children, among more than 2,300 minors split from their families as a effect of Donald Trump's "zero tolerance" policy that saw parents prosecuted for illegally crossing the border.

A child from Honduras is brought to the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Grand Rapids, Mich., Tuesday, July 10, 2018. Lawyers said the fathers were too distraught to speak to the news media.

Older children have been ordered reunited with their families by July 26.

What's more is that the Trump administration single-handedly created this problem, all because they failed to tracking where immigrants were going when first separated.

A federal judge has ordered the United States government to reunify 63 minors under the age of five separated from their families by immigration officials as soon as Tuesday or face penalties.

Asked Tuesday morning about the missed deadline, Trump said: 'Well, I have a solution.

"Things have taken a real step forward", Gelernt said.

After public outcry and a court challenge, Trump stopped separating families last month.

This morning, staff members at a nonprofit organization that has been housing numerous youngest children "made sure every backpack was full and every child got a hug and a goodbye", Southwest Key CEO Juan Sanchez said.

The children have been in the custody of Bethany Christian Services.

The parents will be free while their cases wind through immigration court, and they're expected to be required to wear ankle monitors.

Thousands of babies, toddlers and older children were separated from their parents at the border this spring before Trump reversed course on June 20 amid an worldwide outcry over the images of youngsters in chain-link cages and audio recordings of children crying.

The US government came under fierce worldwide criticism for forcibly separating thousands of migrant families, majority from Central America and most seeking asylum due to violence in their home countries.

But U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw, siding with the American Civil Liberties Union, said DNA testing needed to be done only when parentage couldn't be proven through birth certificates or other ways, or when the lack of a DNA test would prolong family separation.

Today, Sabraw showed little appetite for giving more time to the government unless it could show good reasons in specific cases.

"These are firm deadlines".

But they said the rest would be delayed, some because the parents were still in legal custody, others because the parents were found to have serious criminal records, and still others because the parents had already been deported.

A government lawyer said Monday that at least 54 children under the age of 5 would join their parents by a court-ordered deadline, only about half the 100 or so children covered by the order. While parents are held in jail to await trial by a judge, children are moved into accommodation managed by an HHS agency.

Most of the parents will be released into the US from immigration detention centers, and the children will be freed from government-contracted shelters.
