US says it will release, reunite 50 immigrant children

As the ACLU argued in Friday's court hearing, those steps were originally designed for vetting a non-parent sponsor taking custody of a child who immigrated to the USA alone, not for reuniting children with their own parents.
"It's extremely disappointing that the Trump administration looks like it will fail to reunite even half the children under five with their parent".

In those cases, protections are needed to make sure children are not handed over to adults seeking to exploit them. "At the same time, however, the Government has a strong interest in ensuring that any release of a child from Government custody occurs in a manner that ensures the safety of that child".
Azar said Thursday that federal employees are now manually reviewing documents for each of the 11,800 individual immigrant children in HHS custody to see if anything in their files indicate they arrived at the border with their parents.
