545 Migrant Children Separated from Parents Cannot Be Reunified

545

In 2017, the Trump administration began separating families at the Southern border, prosecuting parents for unlawful entry into the United States and placing their accompanying children into foster care.

By the time lawsuits were filed to challenge this program, many parents had already been deported, without their children.

Lawyers were assigned to work on reunifying kids with their parents. Yesterday, they reported that they've been unable to find the parents of 545 children left behind in the United States.
