ACLU vs. Trump: David Cole on the Fight to Reunite Children Separated from Parents at Border

The Trump administration will not meet today’s deadline to reunite all migrant children under the age of 5 whom immigration officials took from their parents at the border and then sent to jails and detention centers across the country. The Justice Department says it will reunite only about half of the more than 100 migrant children under 5 today, after a federal judge in San Diego agreed to extend the deadline mandating the reunification of all of the youngest children. Today’s secretive reunification operation will be overseen by the Department of Homeland Security and will involve transporting the children hundreds of miles across the country to undisclosed locations. In total, about 3,000 children are still separated from their parents. DN! speaks with David Cole, national legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union and professor of law and public policy at Georgetown University Law Center.
