Hundreds of immigrant children are still looking for their parents after being separated at the border between 2017 and 2018. That’s according to a Tuesday court filing from the Justice Department and American Civil Liberties Union. It says a committee has been unable to reach the parents of 545 children.
The filing also notes about two-thirds of those parents could have been deported without their kids. The separations were part of the “zero tolerance” policy created by the Trump administration.
