FWD.us Statement on Trump Administration’s Failure to Meet Court-Ordered Deadline for Family Reunification

WASHINGTON, DC – FWD.us Director of Coalitions & Policy Alida Garcia issued the following statement today:

“Today, the Trump Administration failed to meet the court-mandated deadline to reunite more than 100 young kids under the age of five with their parents after being separated under President Trump’s cruel ‘zero tolerance’ policy. The Administration has reunited only 1% of the children with their parents that they are mandated to reunite within the next 14 days. This is completely unacceptable — and it remains unclear how the Administration will be able to reunite the remaining 2,900 children in the next 14 days. This is a crisis. They must fix it and reverse their awful and unnecessary ‘zero tolerance’ policy.”
