Hundreds of children remain separated from migrant parents as deadline looms
With just hours left on a court-imposed deadline to reunify migrant families who were separated after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, government officials on Thursday said they had reunited 1,442 children with their parents.
An additional 378 children had been released to sponsors, were reunited with their parents in other ways or have turned 18, according to a report filed in court Thursday afternoon.
Under an order issued by U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego, Thursday is the deadline for reuniting the more than 2,500 children who were taken from parents.
