Trump admin claims it reunited all migrant kids under 5 with parents

If the children under five are not back with their parents by Thursday, Sabraw has asked the ACLU to suggest penalties he could levy against the government. That's only about half of the 100 or so toddlers covered by the order, although several are ineligible for immediate reunification due to their parents' criminal history or uncertainty surrounding parenthood status. "Of course, there remains a tremendous amount of hard work and similar obstacles facing our teams in reuniting the remaining families".

The Trump administration announced Thursday that it had completed a court-mandated effort to reunify toddlers separated from their families at the border. She said the government said one would be reunited sometime Wednesday.

"But make no mistake about it: the government missed the deadline even for these 57 children", he added.

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.

Some parents who were already deported may choose not to have their child sent to them, in some cases because the child has other family in the US or can pursue asylum or other relief. If he finds the government missed his deadlines, he could hold government officials in contempt of court and has a wide variety of punishments available to him. Officials said 11 adults had serious criminal histories, including child cruelty, murder or human smuggling. "Establishing the immigration system demanded of our political leaders by the American people for more than 30 years-one that serves the national interest-will allow our nation to further realize the foundation of freedom, safety, and prosperity we inherited from our Founders". Another planned to house the child with an individual charged with sexually abusing a minor.

That discrepancy in numbers is one of several disagreements both sides of the suit, the Justice Department and the ACLU, pledged to discuss later Monday.

The operation of facilities, like the one at Tornillo, "is a necessary and prudent step to ensure that the Border Patrol can continue its vital national security mission to prevent illegal migration, trafficking, and protect the borders of the United States", said Darcie Johnston, Director at the office of Intergovernmental Affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services, in a letter to Texas State Sen.

Another boy and a girl who had been in temporary foster care were reunited with their Honduran fathers at the centre about three months after they were split up.

Protesters in New York City marched last month in support of the families separated at U.S. -Mexico border.

Such testing, they said, is usually reserved for circumstances in which there are questions about the relationship between the parent and child. The move caused an worldwide uproar.

Those separations occurred between early May and June 20 when Trump signed an executive order halting them.

The Trump administration is missing its court-imposed deadline to reunite 102 young immigrant children with their parents. "It's this administration separating children from their families".

More than two thousand children have been taken from their parents since April and it's estimated that 64 children under 5 years old are still waiting to be reunited with their families.

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

That included 11 who had criminal records - either charges or convictions - seven who were not the parent but could have been a different relative, one who had a false birth certificate, another accused of child abuse, another who wanted to live in a home with an adult with a criminal history, 12 who were already deported, 11 who are now in state or federal criminal custody, one who cannot be found and one with a contagious disease.

The government has until July 26 to reunite almost 2,800 other children, ages five through 17, now in its custody.

Most parents reunited with the youngest children this week were being released from custody on ankle monitoring devices to await immigration hearings.
