While the Trump administration woefully drags its feet on reuniting migrant children separated from their parents at the border, a federal judge has ordered officials to work with the American Civil Liberties Union to potentially return to the U.S. some of the deported parents to continue pursuing their asylum cases.
The Trump administration was ordered by a federal court back in June to reunite every one of the 2,654-plus migrant children it unnecessarily separated from their families by July 26. Unsurprisingly, it has not done that—and, in fact, the number of separated children has recently gone up.

Less than half of the migrant children under five years old who have been separated from their families at the border will be reunited in time for a court-ordered deadline on Tuesday, the American Civil Liberties Union claimed on Sunday night.
A government lawyer may need more time to dog-sit over the weekend, but the Trump administration won’t be getting a blanket extension on the deadlines a judge set for the reunification of migrant children separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border.
