Immigrants' advocates struggle to confirm U.S. met deadline on families

Immigrants' advocates struggle to confirm U.S. met deadline on familiesRights activists said on Friday they were struggling to find immigrant families to confirm the U.S. government had met a court deadline to reunite “eligible” parents and children who had been separated after illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border in recent months. Some children arrived at remote immigration detention centers this week only to spend the night in a car in the parking lot awaiting the parent’s eventual release, immigration advocates and lawyers said. Other children were sent to detention centers to meet their parents but were returned “in tears” to government shelters because of scheduling problems, said Michelle Brané of the Women’s Refugee Commission on call with reporters on Thursday.
