Trump Admin May Have Deported Up To 463 Parents of Children Separated at Border

HeadlineJul 24, 2018

The Trump administration may have deported up to 463 parents of children separated by immigration officials at the border, even as their children remain in U.S. custody. A federal judge has ordered the Trump administration to reunite all separated migrant children and parents by July 26—that’s Thursday. But new government filings reveal nearly 500 of these parents are no longer in the country. In total, at least 1,700 children are still in U.S. custody, waiting to be reunited with their parents.
