Trump Administration Reunifies Young Immigrant Kids With Parents

She ruled at the time that immigrant children generally can't be held longer than 20 days. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen and U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar released this statement Thursday morning: "Dedicated teams at the Departments of Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, and Justice have worked tirelessly to ensure the safety of Ms. L class members. We will be recommending remedies for the non-compliance". A hearing is scheduled Friday morning.

Justice Department attorneys have been under a 6 p.m. ET Thursday deadline to explain to Dana Sabraw, the USA district judge behind the court order, how they returned the eligible children - and why the rest are ineligible for return under the court's guidelines. "It's all confusing to them why there's so many people here and why there's so many strangers here, but they know that they're safe", Valdes said outside the ICE offices. It wasn't clear if he was one of the dozen; no names have been made public. He declined to provide case information for six others. One parent was suspected of child abuse; another was living in a household with another adult who had an outstanding warrant for criminal sexual abuse of a minor. "Our agencies' careful vetting procedures helped prevent the reunification of children with an alleged murderer, an adult convicted of child cruelty, and adults determined not to be the parent of the child", read a joint statement from the departments. They said some of their parents had already been deported. Some parents of the children have already been deported; others are still in criminal custody; others are undergoing background checks. In court earlier this week, officials said it is possible that one young child held in federal custody for more than a year is a USA citizen.

U.S. President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday to blame the Democratic Party, among others, for failing to fix what he has characterized as a broken immigration system. An update on that case was not immediately available Thursday.

As daunting as the process appeared in court, this week's deadline concerns less than 5 percent of the children separated from their parents in recent months.

Customs and Border Patrol also stopped referring all parents from criminal prosecution, essentially returning the situation at the border to the previous status quo. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw told the government to continue working on reunifying families.
