US cannot reunite dozens of child migrants with their parents
The Trump administration has said 27 young migrant children are “not eligible for reunification” with their parents, according to a court filing.
Twelve other children’s mothers or fathers have already been deported from the US, said the government.
“Legitimate logistical impediments” are delaying reunions for many of the 102 children under five years old who were taken from parents, US officials say.
Nearly 3,000 children were split from undocumented adults entering the US.
The government was bound by a court order to reunite children aged five and under by 10 July.
