According to a new Inspector General report published on June 2, DHS reported only a fraction of the families who were separated at the border by CBP. The government watchdog found that at least 60 families were separated in May-June 2018, when DHS had reported only 7. These separations occurred at the height of the Trump administration’s now-ended “zero tolerance” policy. CBP took issue with the report’s suggestion that CBP separated families without regard to their health, safety, and reunification.
