The Biden administration is expanding its effort to find and reunite migrant families who were separated at the U.S.-Mexico border under former President Trump as part of a zero-tolerance policy on illegal crossings.

The night before her 15-year-old son was taken, Leticia Peren remembers putting her hand on his shoulder as they headed for separate male and female quarters at a Border Patrol station in Texas. “Rest,” she told him. “We’re safe here.”

Attorneys are still trying to reach the parents of 337 migrant children who were separated at the US-Mexico border under the Trump administration, down from 368 in June, according to a federal court filing Wednesday.

The Biden administration is preparing to reunite 29 migrant families who were separated at the US-Mexico border under then-President Donald Trump’s controversial “zero tolerance” immigration policy, according to a newly released report.

Four months into the Biden administration’s efforts to reunite migrant families who were separated at the border during the Trump administration, a total of three dozen families have been cleared to be reunified in the United States.

More than 3,900 children were separated from their parents under President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance policy,” according to a report from a task force designed to reunify migrant families.
