Dozens of immigrant children in the USA will be reunited with parents

"They're not aspirational goals", said Judge Dana Sabraw of U.S. District Court in San Diego, admonishing the government. He stated, "These are firm deadlines".

One child has not been matched with a parent, Fabian said.

The number is far less than the 54 the administration had suggested just a day earlier, and it underscores the government's continued struggles to clean up after President Trump's zero tolerance policy collapsed amid legal and public relations problems.

The American Civil Liberties Union, which sued the government over its separation policies, disputed that assertion.

The lead-up to the Monday court appointment indicated the duress the Trump administration is now under in trying to swiftly reunite the families it has separated - and just how messy the situation has gotten.

At a court hearing, Justice Department lawyer Sarah Fabian acknowledged the government wouldn't meet the deadline for all the children, citing a variety of reasons, including that the parents of some of the youngsters have already been deported.

Sabraw's order included exceptions that might threaten the safety of the child. The bleeding still did not stop: "They were refusing to give me sanitary towels, I needed like 30 per day and we were given three per day", said Pagoada. But only 56 out of about 85 children under five who are eligible for reunification will have been reunited with their parents by the Tuesday deadline.

Jennye Mariel Pagoada Lopez, 24, said one night she got so sick that a fellow detainee was forced to scream and wave at a security camera to get her help - but the officials who arrived still refused to get her to a doctor, despite her heavy bleeding. According to government attorneys, nine have parents who have already been deported, while an additional nine have parents that have been released from government custody in the United States.

Medical officials told reporters that they're healthy, fever-free, mentally fit and "seem to be in high spirits". Eight of the boys were brought out on stretchers over the first two days - four on Sunday and four on Monday .

The government has said the delays stem from the time it takes to run background checks, confirm parentage and locate parents released from detention.

Immigrant parents who reveled after joyful reunions with their young children spoke Wednesday of the traumatic impact of being separated from their sons and daughters for months after they were taken from them at the US border.

As the government awaits the court's Monday decision on whether or not the timeline for family reunification will be extended, time is of the essence: doctors have repeatedly warned that being separated from parents for even short periods of time can cause symptoms of toxic stress in children, which can derail healthy emotional development. The families will be released after they are reunited. She said doubted that the judge would approve of the administration enacting it by convincing parents to sign away their children's right to release.

The ACLU's Gelernt said during a court hearing on Friday that it was "startling" that the government can not find some parents.

Sabraw issued a protective order shielding children's names and some reunification details from disclosure.

With no other apparent plans in motion for how to receive the waves of migrants fleeing Central America, the Trump administration appears to have turned to the very same practice the president has blamed for the status quo.

Speaking to reporters just before his flight to Europe for the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, Trump blamed his administration's failure to meet the court's deadline on the detained families themselves, saying the "solution" to the crisis he created is "don't come to our country illegally".

Rodriguez said the commander running the shelter at Tornillo told him that none of the children there would be housed at Fort Bliss, one of two Texas military bases that the Pentagon has said will likely house thousands of immigrants who have been apprehended at the border.
