    Government says it may need more time to reunite some separated families


    The Trump administration said Friday that it may need more time to reunite the immigrant families it separated.


    During the hearing, the government said it may not meet the judge’s deadline to reunite families it had separated because officials do not necessarily know the location of every parent. They will reconvene on Monday morning.

    When will separated families be reunited?


    The government has about 24 hours to turn over a list of children under 5

    At today's status hearing, Judge Dana Sabraw asked the government for a list of all the children under the age of 5 it believes are in the class of children covered by the reunification order — plus any reasons officials believe they may need more time for reunions in particular cases.

    The government has until 5 p.m. Saturday to turn over that order.

    Prisons are profiting from forced immigrant labor

    Who stands to gain from the Trump administration's immigration policies? Not the children who have been forcibly seized from their parents. Not asylum seekers fleeing violence in their countries. Not the United States - or its standing in the world.


    One possibility? Private for-profit prison companies.

    The two largest private prison contractors in the United States, GEO Group and CoreCivic, house thousands of immigrant detainees across the country. These corporations now face allegations that they force immigrant detainees to perform unpaid labor inside their facilities.

    Trump’s about to miss Tuesday’s court-ordered deadline to reunite young migrant kids with their parents

    In a joint filing Tuesday, the Trump administration and the ACLU attested that at least 20 children who are supposed to be reunited with their families under the court order will not be reunited in time due to logistical obstacles.
    When will the public know how many families have been reunified? The judge in the case wants a status update by Tuesday night; the government wants to wait until Wednesday morning.

    Trump’s about to miss Tuesday’s court-ordered deadline to reunite young migrant kids with their parents

    Twenty or more kids under 5 will remain separated. But the court will likely let the administration off the hook for now.

    Inside the Former Walmart That Is Now a Shelter for Almost 1,500 Migrant Children

    The teeming, 250,000-square-foot facility is a model of border life in Trump-era America, part of a growing industry of detention centers and shelters as federal authorities scramble to comply with the president’s order to end “catch and release” of migrants illegally entering the country. Now that children are often being separated from their parents, this facility has had to obtain a waiver from the state to expand its capacity.

    This is so horrible, to me. I can’t imagine having my child taken away, not knowing where my child is. And to hear no one knows where my child is. OMG!
    This is the worst for #45 so far. May God NOT have mercy on his soul.

    Whose children will he come after next, for slave labor and other nefarious acts.
    This has to be his greatest victory so far. Successfully separating parent and child.
