U.S. will reunite only half of migrant children by Tuesday deadline

For now, the U.S. government can only reunite about half the immigrant children under age 5 who were separated from their parents at the U.S. border. It will miss a court-ordered deadline of Tuesday, a government attorney told a judge on Monday. Lee Gelernt, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union, which brought the case, said he did not think the government was complying with the reunification order.
