There are still 171 children from separated families in US custody more than four months after a judge ordered the US government to reunite the undocumented immigrant families it had split up at the border, according to court documents filed Thursday.
Of the children who remain in custody, there are seven who are in the pipeline to reunite with their parents in their countries of origin, and six who the US government is working to discharge to parents in the US.
But more than 85 percent of the kids from separated families who remain in custody will not be reunified with their parents either because the parents have declined reunification or because officials have deemed it cannot occur because the parents are unfit or pose a danger.
In June, US District Judge Dana Sabraw ordered the government to reunite most of the families it had divided, comprising parents and children who had been separated as a result of the government’s now-reversed “zero tolerance” policy at the border.
Apparently, the reunifications aren’t complete.
