A federal judge who has criticized the Trump administration's tardiness in reuniting families separated at the border offered praise during a status hearing on Friday after 450 children between the ages of 5 and 17 were reunited with their parents.
“The reunifications are happening very rapidly, which is good. A big block will be reunified in a timely manner,”U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw said. “It really does appear there’s been great progress.”
The administration said last week that it had identified 2,551 immigrant children in custody who had potentially been separated from their families at the border.
