Less than a quarter of migrant children have been reunified as deadline looms
The Department of Homeland Security and Department of Health and Human Services have reunited 364 migrant children to date who had been separated at the border due to the Trump administration's zero-tolerance policy, according to court documents filed Thursday evening.
The big picture: A federal court's deadline for reunifying all migrant kids in HHS's custody who were removed from their parents is next Thursday, July 26th. There are still more than 2,100 children who have not been reunited. 229 parents are currently unable to be reunified either because parents have waived reunification, are in criminal custody or have been deemed ineligible.
