The Biden administration announced Monday that it would be reuniting four immigrant families separated during the Trump administration’s short experimentation with a “zero tolerance” immigration policy, shifting focus from a child migrant crisis on the United States’ southern border that the White House is still struggling to control.
“The Biden administration will reunite four migrant families separated during the Trump administration this week, while its reunification task force estimates that over 1,000 families remain separated,” according to ABC News. “The four families include at least one child who was separated from his or her parent at age 3 and at least two women who were separated from their children in late 2017 — part of a pilot program for former President Donald Trump’s 2018 ‘zero tolerance’ policy.”
The children were reportedly released into the United States but the parents were deported back to their home countries of Honduras and Mexico, per the network.
