Federal Judge Orders that Children Must be Returned to Their Parents Within 30 Days.

6/27/18 Judge Dana M. Sabraw granted a preliminary injunction sought by the American Civil Liberties Union, saying all migrant children separated from their parents must be returned to their families within 30 days, allowing just 14 days for the return of children under age 5. He also ordered that parents be allowed to speak by phone with their children within 10 days.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and other top Homeland Security officials have repeatedly insisted the country’s immigration impasse requires urgent legislative attention. But the country’s border security and immigration agencies now find themselves pressed by Trump’s June 20 executive order and the new court order to reunite the migrant families they have spent the past six weeks pulling apart.
