Just 38 children guaranteed to be reunified by border separation deadline

Less Than Half of The Separated Immigrant Toddlers Will be Reunited By Tomorrow's Deadline

In a court filing Tuesday, the Justice Department included a section called: "Not eligible for reunification". The boy was secured in a booster seat, and father and son were driven away.

The infant is one of hundreds of children who have yet to be reunited with their parents, with many separated from their families under the Trump administration's recently rescinded "zero tolerance" family separation policy. Authorities gave few details on where the reunions would be held, and many were expected to take place in private.

In Grand Rapids, the children were "absolutely thrilled to be with their parents again".

A government lawyer said on Monday (Tuesday NZT) at least 54 children under the age of 5 would join their parents by a court-ordered deadline, only about half the 100 or so children covered by the order.

Asked about the missed deadline, the president said: "Well, I have a solution".

Attorneys for the American Civil Liberties Union, which brought the lawsuit, said activists have turned up as many as 10 more names that need to added to the number of separated kids still in detention.

On Tuesday, with the court-mandated deadline looming, the government responded.

The lead-up to the Monday court appointment indicated the duress the Trump administration is now under in trying to swiftly reunite the families it has separated - and just how messy the situation has gotten.

"But until I have both my children with me, I don't know what I will do", she said.

The American Civil Liberties Union, which is representing the parents in a class-action lawsuit, said USA officials "have not even tried" to return 12 children to parents who were deported, and said officials should have more quickly found eight parents who have been released in the United States.

The father said he planned to live with relatives in the United States as his asylum case is processed, which could take years.

District Judge Dana Sabraw ordered the government to reunite all of the under-five children by Tuesday, and the older ones by July 26.

Sabraw indicated more time would be allowed only in specific cases where the government showed good reasons for a delay. He stated, "These are firm deadlines". "They're not giving up on their goals".

The Trump administration confirmed on Monday that it will not meet the deadline set by a federal judge for reuniting parents with their young children.

"It's extremely disappointing that the Trump administration looks like it will fail to reunite even half the children under 5 with their parents", Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project, said in a statement sent to Newsweek.

Still other parents still have yet to undergo DNA testing to match them to their purported children.

1 child can not be reunified at this time because the parent's location has been unknown for more than a year. The child is now in the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Refugee Resettlement.

The Justice Department also said that only 75 of the 102 children aged four and younger who were supposed to be returned to their parents by Tuesday are eligible for reunification.

'If we find out they are not the legal parent, then clearly we are not going to reunite them, ' Meekins said. Afterwards, the ACLU expanded its suit on behalf of the other parents and children the government planned to imminently separate. "The government has to prove they are unfit or a danger".

The Trump administration buckled to intense political pressure and abandoned the policy in June.

The ACLU's Gelernt said during a court hearing on Friday that it was "startling" that the government can not find some parents.
