WASHINGTON: After splitting from former President Donald Trump’s administration, the United States will begin reuniting immigrant children with their parents this week, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Murcas said Monday.
Murcas tweeted that four mothers who had fled “extremely dangerous situations in their countries” would be reunited with their three-year-old children. “We are glad that the process of reunification is starting this week and that these four mothers will embrace their children after so many years,” she wrote.
He added in a statement issued by his department that the move was “just the beginning”. “We are reuniting the first group of families, and many more will follow, and we recognize the importance of providing stability and resources to families who need to be healthy.
President Joe Biden has preferred a special task force to be part of Trump’s tough policies to rehabilitate hundreds of families focused on preventing emigration from Central America.
