Biden administration announces separated migrant families to be reunited this week

Four families separated under the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy in 2017 will be reunited this week, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced on Monday.


One mother fled from ติดตั้ง slotxo ios Honduras with her children, another came from Mexico prior to their separations. The two other families were from Guatemala. They will now be allowed to reunite with their children in the U.S.


The government only released limited details about the families due to privacy concerns. It marks the first time the Biden administration's Family Reunification Task Force has announced a concrete product of its work since it was established at the beginning of his term in January.


"This is just the beginning," Mayorkas said. We continue to work tirelessly to reunite many more children with their parents in the weeks and months ahead. We have a lot of work still to do. But I am proud of the progress we have made, and the reunifications that we have helped to achieve this week. "


The families will be granted a "humanitarian parole" status, allowing them to remain in the U.S. for a limited amount of time, according to Michelle Brané, executive director of the Family Reunification Task Force. The government is exploring other options for longer-term relief, but Mayorkas said each case is unique.


"There is not a one size fits all," Mayorkas said. "This is an issue that we are looking into very carefully and working with counsel for the family." We are all in agreement that stability and resources are needed. These families need that to heal. And we are making our terminations on an individualized basis at this point. "
