In immigration news, NBC News reports attorneys tasked with reuniting children separated from their families at the U.S.-Mexico border have finally been given key information critical to finding the children’s relatives, after months of pleading for the information. Documents filed in federal court in California last week say attorneys have now obtained phone numbers and other data that had not previously been made available by the Trump administration. This comes as lawyers say they have found the parents of nearly 40 children among 666 refugee kids whose families they couldn’t track down. The children were taken away from their families between April and June 2018 at the height of Trump’s “zero tolerance” family separation policy.
