Homeland Security: Children and u.s.-Mexico Border

homeland security: Another 16 children are expected to be reunited with their parents in the next 24 hours, officials say, according to CTV. U.S. President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday that ended a policy separating migrant children from their families when they arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border. The reunions were announced late Saturday by the Department of Homeland Security. Stories and photographs of detention centres housing migrant children have sparked widespread outcry across the United States. A total of 2,053 minors separated from their parents are being held in facilities funded by the Department of Health and Human Services, officials said, adding that the organization is working with relevant agency partners to foster communications and work towards reuniting every minor and every parent or guardian via well-established reunification processes. On Saturday, protests were held across the country calling for the government to reunite the children with their parents. ( As reported in the news.
