As the federal government races to reunite the children it separated from parents, one child under the age of five appears to stand alone: He or she may be an American citizen.
In a court filing Tuesday, the Justice Department included a section called: “Not eligible for reunification.” Its explanation: “1 child cannot be reunified at this time because the parent’s location has been unknown for more than a year. Defendants are unable to conclusively determine whether the parent is a class member, and records show the parent and child might be U.S. citizens.”
The article goes on to state the following:
A spokesperson for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in an email to CBS News that the child’s parent is not currently in ICE custody. The child is currently in the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement. A spokesperson for the agency said it could not provide more details about what indication there is that this child and parent may be U.S. citizens, how the child came to be in federal custody or where the child is currently sheltered.
