Washington: About 1,800 children of the more than 2,500 separated from their parents at theUS-Mexican border have been reunited with their families, the US government said.
This included about 1,442 children who were returned to parents who were in US Immigration Customs Enforecement custody, and another 378 who were released under a variety of other circumstances.
Government lawyers said 711 other children were not eligible for reunification with their parents by Thursday’s deadline, which was set by a federal judge in San Diego. In 431 of these cases, the families could not be reunited because the parents were no longer in the United States.
