The process of reuniting migrant families who were separated in the prior Trump administration is underway. A few families are being reunited while about one-thousand kids remain separated.
A statement from DHS says this is just the beginning and noted ongoing efforts to reunite migrant children with their families. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas called the policy of the prior administration cruel and unjust. It’s estimated that several thousand migrant children were separated from their families in the previous administration, starting in 2017.
