Four families separated at the southern border under former President Trump will be reunited in the United States this week, the Biden administration revealed this week.
Speaking to reporters Sunday, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas declined to offer the identities of the children, only describing them as aged three to “teenagers who have had to live without their parent during their most formative years” at the time of separation.
All of the children are already in the US. Immigration officials will provide the parents with humanitarian parole to enter the country to reunify.
The reunions are expected to occur sometime between Monday and Wednesday.
“We continue to work tirelessly to reunite many more children with their parents in the weeks and months ahead. We have a lot of work still to do, but I am proud of the progress we have made and the reunifications that we have helped to achieve this week,” the DHS secretary remarked to
