President Biden’s Administration Effort To Reunite Minors Still Separated From Their Parents.

President Biden’s Administration effort to reunite minors still separated from their parents.

The Biden Administration has identified nearly 4,000 minor who were separated from their families at the U.S.-Mexico border between July 1, 2017 and January 20, 2021, under Trump’s ‘zero tolerance’ policy and related initiatives, according to a June 2021 DHS Family Reunification Task Force Report.

A press release announcing the report also said that the task force launched in February ‘does not have a confirmed record of reunification’ for 2,127of the children, but 1,786 children have been reunified with a parent and they continue to work to reunite families separated at the border.

The process to reunite these children to their parents is rather slow. According to a recent Reuters reported with a mere 7 children reunited to parents by the task force since February. An official indicated that the agency “chose to intentionally start slow’ as they progressively work on overcoming this challenging situation.
