Trump administration to ask for more time to reunite immigrant families

Trump admin releases names of children under 5 separated at border Less Than Half of The Separated Immigrant Toddlers Will be Reunited By Tomorrow's Deadline

But reuniting the remainder has proved to be a much tougher task for Justice and immigration officials, who for months separated migrant families at the U.S-Mexico border under the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" policy.

The American Civil Liberties Union says it appears the Trump administration will miss Tuesday's deadline to reunite young children with their parents in more than half of the cases.

Tornillo, about 50 miles southeast of El Paso, now houses more than 350 immigrant minors, including 16 children who were separated from their parents after they were apprehended at the border, said Rodriguez, who toured the facility Friday along with state Rep. Lina Ortega.

Last week, the administration requested an extension on the reunification process for those children under the age of 5, stating in a separate hearing Monday that it had only reunited two of them with their parents and would not be able to meet the court-imposed deadline for the rest.

Children are escorted to the Cayuga Center, which provides foster care and other services to immigrant children separated from their families, in New York City, U.S., July 10, 2018. "That's the solution." Some of the separated families arrived at US ports of entry seeking asylum, which is not illegal.

The separations sparked national and worldwide outrage that crossed party lines and including warnings from health experts that taking children from their parents would incur significant emotional harm.

Speaking to reporters just before his flight to Europe for the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, Trump blamed his administration's failure to meet the court's deadline on the detained families themselves, saying the "solution" to the crisis he created is "don't come to our country illegally". Once the children are handed over to their custody, ICE will release the families together.

The children were taken from their parents under President Donald Trump's "zero-tolerance" immigration policy, which called for the prosecution and detention of adult immigrants crossing the border without authorization. While parents are held in jail to await trial by a judge, children are moved into accommodation managed by an HHS agency.

At the hearing in San Diego, Judge Dana Sabraw gave the authorities extra time to determine which children will be back with their parents, as government lawyer Sarah Fabian said 54 of the youngsters could be reunited by the Tuesday deadline, the U.S. media reports said.

"These are firm deadlines, not aspirational goals", the judge said. "Tell people not to come to our country illegally", he said.

The US administration will not meet a July 10 deadline to reunite all children under the age of five with their families. They said an additional 17 could also join their parents if DNA results arrived and a criminal background check on a parent was completed by day's end. In the courtroom, they expressed openness to collaborating on several issues, including searching for parents who have been removed from the US and double-checking the criminal records.

Through DNA testing, five adults who claimed to have children were determined not to be their parents, according to the government.

"This is hard, very hard", she said.

For the remaining almost 50 children, some of their parents have already been deported, while others were released and have already disappeared into the shadows of the illegal immigrant population, and the government has struggled to track them down.

Also, on Monday, a federal judge in Los Angeles emphatically rejected the Trump administration's efforts to detain immigrant families for an extended period.
