After a federal judge determined that migrant children separated from their families must be reunited by July 26, and by July 10 for those under the age of 5, the Times reports that the A.C.L.U believes “fewer than half” of these children will be reunited by then. Reporter Miriam Jordan writes that there are several issues delaying reunification efforts, including the government’s unwillingness to streamline the reunifiction process. To add additional comlexities, Jordan reports that “19 parents of children who are under the age of 5 have been deported.”
