More than 300 older children split at border are reunited
SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Trump administration says it has reunified 364 children ages 5 and older with their families after they were separated at the border, still leaving hundreds to go before a court-imposed deadline of next Thursday.
The Justice Department reaffirmed in a court filing Thursday that it has identified 2,551 children who may be covered by U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw’s order.
The administration and the American Civil Liberties Union are due back in court Friday for the fifth time in two weeks as the judge holds tightly to a July 26 for all children to be reunified. He set an earlier deadline of July 10 for dozens of children under 5.
