Trump Admin: One Third Of Immigrant Children Won't Be Reunited

The US government has to meet 4 big deadlines in 7 days on separated families

The Trump administration has reunited 364 separated migrant children over the age of five with their families thus far, according to a new court filing.

Officials with HHS and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have interviewed and cleared 954 parents, government attorneys said Friday, and those reunifications are expected to occur quickly.

The immigrant families were separated at the border as a result of the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy, which called for prosecuting all adults who illegally cross the border. "A big block will be reunified in a timely manner", Sabraw said.

With just one week left to go, the government is scrambling to reunite as many as 2,551 children removed from their parents before a July 26 deadline.

The Trump administration will only reunite about 60 percent of the children between ages 5-17 that are now in government custody will be reunited with their parents. The number was updated to 450 today, an ACLU spokesperson said. Of the 103 children younger than 5, 57 have been reconnected.

Migrant families from Mexico, fleeing from violence, listen to officers of the US Customs and Border Protection before entering the United States to apply for asylum at Paso del Norte global border crossing bridge in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico June 20, 2018.

In a court filing Thursday, the administration said about 1,600 parents were believed to be eligible for reunification and about 900 were not eligible or "not yet known to be eligible". The rest are pending review.

More than 850 parents are facing final deportation orders, government lawyers told the court on Friday. Federal officials would have to show a good reason if they can't meet the deadline.

Children were parted from their parents by USA officials at the border as part of a broader "zero tolerance" crackdown on illegal immigration by the administration of President Donald Trump, sparking an global outcry. Administration lawyers similarly could not answer how numerous reunited families are being detained together and how many have been released on parole. The president ordered the practice stopped on June 20.

It was unclear from the status report, filed as part of an American Civil Liberties Union lawsuit challenging parent-child separations at the border, exactly how many more reunifications were likely.

On Monday, Judge Dana Sabraw, the federal judge in charge of the migrant reunification process, ordered the government to stop deporting families after the ACLU expressed concerns over "mass deportations. carried out imminently and immediately upon reunification" that would prevent families from making asylum claims.

On Thursday, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said her staff was focused on meeting the judge's deadline that same day, but added that "we will not cut corners".
