Judge to Rule Today Whether to Delay Deadline for Reuniting Migrant Children with Parents

HeadlineJul 09, 2018
H4 us migrant child reunification deadline looms

In San Diego, a federal judge will hold a hearing today on whether to delay Tuesday’s deadline that mandated the reunification of all children under the age of 5 whom the Trump administration separated from their parents at the border. Under court order, the Justice Department released the names of more than 100 children under 5 years old who were separated from their parents. The Trump administration is claiming it needs more time to match children with their parents, including at least 19 parents who have already been deported. The American Civil Liberties Union says less than half of separated children under the age of 5 would be reunited by Tuesday. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar has admitted nearly 3,000 children were separated from their parents by the Trump administration. He had previously claimed that only 2,047 children were separated. We’ll have more on the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy and immigration crackdown after headlines.
