migrant families

Earlier this week, U-S Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials referred to the facilities holding migrant children as 'summer camp'.  But the Trump administration is still feeling the heat for its 'zero tolerance' stance, not only from immigration rights advocates but also on Capitol Hill.  With migrant children still separated from their parents, deportations, and various reports of mistreatment at immigrant youth shelters, the disorder at the border seems far from over.

The Trump administration faces a challenge: reuniting the migrant families it separated. A federal judge said the government must reunite more than two thousand immigrant kids with their families. But there are questions about how the process will work... and whether the government can get it done in time.

Polls show that President Trump's policy of separating children from migrant families at the southern border was opposed by a majority of American voters, but supported by most Republicans. This week, President Trump reversed that policy - signing an executive order that would require migrant families to be detained together.
