Dozens of immigrant children in the U.S. will be reunited with parents

After Avenatti tweeted a complaint about not being allowed in to the Cayuga home for children in East Harlem, he said he got a call from the center assuring him he could see the youngsters.

Sarah Fabian, a Justice Department lawyer, said of the original 102 children under age 5 identified as potentially separated from their parents, only 75 turned out to be eligible for reunification. "Don't come to our country illegally". A spokeswoman for ICE did not immediately return a request for comment to provide more clarity around the shift, and to which groups of migrant families it would apply.

Sabraw, an appointee of Republican President George W Bush, said on Monday (Tuesday NZT) that he was "very encouraged" by the efforts to reunite families by his deadline, calling it "real progress". "Accordingly, by the end of the day we will decide what remedies to recommend to the court for the non-compliance". A second hearing to monitor the reunification process was scheduled for Tuesday.

The administration said another 46 children under the age of five remain separated from their families because of safety concerns and other issues.

Eleven of the adults had serious criminal histories, such as kidnapping and murder, said Chris Meekins, chief of staff for the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, which is aiding in the reunification effort. According to HHS, the screening has saved children from being put in potentially unsafe situations, including with adults have charges or convictions for child cruelty, kidnapping, murder, human smuggling, or domestic violence. Nine parents were being kept for other offenses. "They are just using children!" he said. She said locations would not be publicly disclosed, but children have been sent to shelters across the country.

The separations sparked national and global outrage that crossed party lines and including warnings from health experts that taking children from their parents would incur significant emotional harm. An update on that case was not immediately available Thursday.

Gelernt told the judge in recent hearings he was concerned that some parents may have opted to leave the United States, believing that was the only way they could be reunited with their children.

"Their statement is vague at a minimum", said attorney Lee Gelernt, noting that a San Diego judge had set a deadline of Tuesday for reuniting those children.

According to court filings, both children were forcibly taken from their parents at the border and brought to Noank Community Support Services in CT, where they are now being cared for.

The government has reportedly struggled to offer exact information about the number of children separated from their parents. "If those [parents] submitted birth certificates...[we] suggest those kids be released".

But Meekins said the measures are created to protect children. But he said those who remain split from their parents are "in for a long process". "They're not aspirational goals", the judge said Tuesday, the day of the initial deadline, saying the government still had hours in the day to reunify the youngest migrants affected by the administration's policy. The government has been conducting DNA tests of all alleged families to ensure that children are not being released to human smugglers.

A federal consent decree requires the government to release children from family detention facilities within 20 days. "And we were thrilled for them".

Seven other adults were determined to not be a parent.

Trump signed an executive order on June 20 to stop the separations concerning asylum seekers after its zero-tolerance approach announced earlier in the spring had raised a furor. Customs and Border Patrol also stopped referring all parents from criminal prosecution, essentially returning the situation at the border to the previous status quo. Immigration attorneys say they already are seeing barriers to those reunifications from a backlog in the processing of fingerprinting of parents to families unable to afford the airfare to fly the child to them - which could run as high as $1,000.
