The Justice Department has handed over information to assist in reuniting migrant families with their separated children. Apparently, they’ve had this all along but did not bother to hand it over until recently.
There are more than 600 children whose parents have yet to be found since they were separated at the border. A U.S. District Judge ordered that these families be reunited, but lawyers have had a hard time with so little information to go on. On Wednesday, they informed the court that this new data, which includes things like phone numbers, will move this effort along greatly.
