As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said late Sunday that it expects the Trump administration to complete fewer than half of the court-ordered migrant family reunifications before a deadline this week.

The prediction comes after the administration on Sunday turned over a list of 102 names of immigrant children under 5 years old who have been separated from their parents under President Trump’s immigration policy.

The article goes on to state the following:

The ACLU said in a statement that it now “appears likely that less than half will be reunited by Tuesday’s court-ordered deadline.”

The group said that the government initially provided “incomplete information” before a Saturday deadline to hand over the names, but revised the list on Sunday.

“It’s extremely disappointing that the Trump administration looks like it will fail to reunite even half the children under 5 with their parents,” said Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, in a news release.

“These kids have already suffered so much because of this policy, and every extra day apart just adds to that pain,” Gelernt added.
