A government lawyer said Monday that 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.
Federal officials said they are reunifying as many children as they can and attributed delays to "legitimate logistical impediments" that make it "impossible or excusable" to meet the court's deadlines. 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.
"Their children are stranded in this country", the ACLU said of the children of deported parents. "Defendants are unable to conclusively determine whether the parent is a class member, and records show the parent and child might be US citizens". Leon Fresco, a former senior Justice Department immigration lawyer, said putting ankle bracelets on migrants is a return to what the Trump administration itself has described as catch and release; ending its practice was a top priority of the labour union that represents Border Patrol agents and endorsed Trump's candidacy. According to the document, the child is under the age of five and has been held in an ICE detention center for over a year. The DoJ has not provided any more information on the family. "And so the government says the tension is between a fast release and a safe release".
It was the largest single effort to date to undo one effect of President Donald Trump's zero-tolerance policy - separating families who try to slip across the Mexican border into the country.
Earlier this year, the departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services - the agencies responsible for detaining families at the border and housing children who have been separated from their families, respectively - announced a new partnership in which potential sponsors to take children out of HHS custody would be fingerprinted, as would everyone in the sponsor's household.
Sabraw's order included exceptions that might threaten the safety of the child.
However, Sabraw has not been pleased with the government's efforts.
They remained apart for two months, with Pulex in detention in El Paso and her daughter sent to live with a foster family in MI.
Without separations, or family detention, the government has few options besides allowing families to pursue their immigration claims "at liberty" as prior administrations had generally done.
"Our process may not be as quick as some might like, but there is no question that it is protecting children", Meekins, chief of staff of the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, said in a conference call with reporters. "That can be done". He stated, "These are firm deadlines. They're not aspirational goals".
The reunification process has highlighted how traumatic the Trump administration's decision to separate children has been.
The ACLU, which launched the lawsuit that saw the Trump administration ordered to reunite all children separated from their families under its "zero tolerance" policy, said the administration looks set to fail to reunite even half of children under 5 with their parents. "That's the solution." Apparently, the president wasn't informed that his administration very well may have separated a legal USA citizen from his child, a problem to which his "solution" does not apply.
Sabraw had set Tuesday as the deadline for the government to reunite parents with children under 5 years old from whom they'd been separated at the border.
"That is going to be a significant undertaking", Sabraw said on Tuesday of the next deadline.
