Recent court files released late Thursday point out that Justice Department and immigration lawyers are still a long way from each other to reunite migrant families separated under the Trump government's zero-tolerance immigration policy. District Judge Dana M. Sabraw had instructed the Department of Justice to work for American Civil Liberties Union leaders to come forward with plans to reunite families, especially for some 400 parents who were deported to their home countries without their children. In the court documents, the government appears to be shifting responsibility for reuniting the family to the ACLU, also known as the plaintiff.

"Plaintiffs' attorneys should use their considerable resources and network of law firms, NGOs, volunteers, and others, along with the information that the defendants have provided (or will soon provide) to contact potential class members in
The Government also suggests that the ACLU should be responsible for "determining whether any class member wishes to be with their or reunited their child, or whether they wish to renounce reunification Plaintiff's lawyer would be responsible for allowing any class member to consult with a lawyer on this decision and to discuss this decision with his child. "
In its ruling, the ACLU insisted that the" The Government " must carry the ultimate burden of finding the parents. "
"Not only the unconstitutional separation practice of the government led to this crisis, but the United States government has much more resources than any other group of NGOs, many NGOs and law firms are ready to help.) The plaintiffs therefore hope that the Government will take significant and rapid steps to find the parents themselves. "
Parents who have been deported without their children are difficult because some come from very remote communities in Central America, says Justice and Founder Motion, Cathleen Caron, the Brooklyn-based charitable organization, is one of the groups trying to reunite families.
Caron says many of the parents had originally fled their homes for fear of their safety
"When they are sent back, they are worried about their own safety in their country of origin, so who knows where they are going because they are hide because that's why they left, "Caron said.
Judge Sabraw had originally set a deadline of July 26 to reunite more than 2,500 families.
According to data released on Thursday, 1,535 children were reunited with their parents in custody of immigration and customs enforcement. Another 444 were released to a sponsor other than their parents, reunited with their parents in the care of the Department of Homeland Security earlier in the process, or the children were 18.
There are still 572 children who remain in the care of the DHS Refugee Accommodation Office because their parents are unavailable or unapproved for reunification, if you have a criminal record.
