A judge denied the Trump administration's request to extend the deadline to reunite families that had been separated at the border, the Associated Press reports, demanding that the government "must comply with the time frame unless there is an articulable reason."

The details: U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw said that by Saturday afternoon, the administration must share a list of the 101 children under five years old that still needed to be reunited with the American Civil Liberties Union. The deadline in place for reuniting children under five is July 10, per the AP, and a Justice Department attorney Sarah Fabian told the AP that the government "has matched 86 parents to 83 children and 16 are not yet matched."

Cuomo: Data suggests coronavirus curve may be flattening in New York

The total number of new hospitalizations, ICU admissions and daily intubations in New York have decreased each of the past three days — an indication that social distancing may be working, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday.

The big picture: The governor's office has been tracking different models that predicted a peak of between 55,000 and 110,000 hospital beds needed for coronavirus patients in New York by the end of April. Data over the past few weeks suggests that hospitalizations may potentially be plateauing earlier than those models projected.
