Judge in CA says reunited families can't be deported

Hosted by

Late Thursday, a federal judge in California ruled that the Trump administration cannot deport reunited families. More than 2500 migrant families were separated under the “zero tolerance” policy -- when they were caught at the border between April and June. Parents had to make a tough choice: agree to be deported alone, so their child could seek asylum in the US -- or waive their child’s right to seek asylum, so they all could stay together and be deported together.
