Huffpost: A federal judge said Friday that the responsibility was “100 percent” on the Trump administration to locate and reunify parents it separated from their children at the border.
In a conference call with lawyers ? for the case involving a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of separated migrant parents ? U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego said the government needed to provide a clear plan on how it was going to locate and reunify parents with nearly 600 kids still separated and held in government-contracted shelters.
“It appears only 12 or 13 of over 500 parents have been located, which is just unacceptable at this point. And it appears that there is not a plan in place,” Sabraw said on the conference call with lawyers from the government and the ACLU, noting that many of those parents had been “removed from the country without their child.”
