Thousands protest in San Diego against family separation policy

The Latest: Congressman says kids at center get good care

Officials from US President Donald Trump's administration late on Saturday said that the US government knows the location of all children in its custody after separating them from their families at the border and is working to reunite them.

The statement said 522 migrant children had been reunited with their parents, although it did not say how many, if any, of those had been reunited since Trump signed his order on Wednesday.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order to end his policy of separating immigrant children from their families on the US-Mexico border, after images of youngsters in cages sparked outrage at home and overseas.

Trump also continued to blame Democrats in the Republican-controlled Congress, saying House Republicans could "easily pass" a strong border security bill, but it would still have to pass the Senate "and for that we need 10 Democrat votes, and all they do is RESIST".

Indian-Americans, most of whom are highly skilled and came to the U.S. mainly on H-1B work visas, are the worst sufferers of the current immigration system which imposes a seven per cent per country quota on allotment of green cards or permanent legal residency.

Deportation proceedings can take months to complete, and the factsheet did not say whether parents and children would be reunited in the intervening time.

Protesters have confronted Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi at a showing of a documentary about children's TV host Fred Rogers, and they questioned the Republican's stands on immigration and health care.

The fact sheet did not say how long it might take to reunite the families. "The fact sheet says ICE and HHS will work to facilitate communication, but still lists numbers that parents should call for assistance", reports CNN. The center, located in Los Fresnos, Texas, now houses women whose children have been taken from them, including breastfeeding mothers.

House to vote on closely watched immigration bills
Key Republican lawmakers who have been involved in the negotiations said Friday that talks would continue through the weekend. Leonard Lance of New Jersey exists about as far away from a sold-out MAGA rally as you can get in the Republican Party.

"It was very hard to see", said Denise Benavides of Dallas, who said she's a member of the League of United Latin American Citizens. "When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came".

But to hand the children over, they were essentially redefined as unaccompanied migrant children - subjecting them to the same HHS procedures as children who entered alone.

She came back and he was gone, Garcia said. "They're cages", said California Rep. Jackie Speier.

Prior to making this announcement, the current administration had no formal protocol to guarantee that separated migrant families were deported back to their home country together.

"Clearly, anyone who looks at the record understands that the Democrats have been serious about comprehensive immigration reform", Sanders said.

The Trump administration has faced overwhelming backlash to its family separation policy, which is a direct result of the "zero tolerance" initiative. Parents were jailed and children were taken to government-contracted shelters. Officials have said as many as 2,300 children had been separated from the time the policy began until June 9.

As Democratic congressman Ted Lieu derided the separations as "a functional equivalent of kidnapping", he played the audio into a microphone, to a startled House chamber.
