Trump administration gets more time to reunite migrant families

Hosted by

The Trump Administration asked for more time to reunite some families separated at the border, and U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego approved. Tuesday was the original deadline to reunite about 100 children younger than five with their parents. The White House says about half of those families will be released together by the deadline. The judge wants an update on the rest by tomorrow. These kids represent a tiny fraction of the 3000 or so who are supposed to be back with their parents by the end of this month
