DHS Secretary Mayorkas announced that a handful of migrant families that were separated at the border by the Trump administration will be allowed to reunify in the U.S. this week. The four families will be the first to be reunified through a task force that was created by President Biden shortly after taking office in January. The families came from Honduras and Mexico, and some had been separated as far back as 2017. The executive director of the family reunification task force, longtime human rights advocate Michelle Brané, said the parents would be given temporary permission to enter the U.S. through a process known as humanitarian parole. Immigrant advocates welcomed the announcement, but expressed frustration at the slow pace of reunification.
