Biden administration announces separated migrant families to be reunited this week

Source: ABC News

Four families separated under the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy in 2017 will be reunited this week, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced on Monday.

One mother fled from Honduras with her children, another came from Mexico prior to their separations. The two other families were from Guatemala. They will now be allowed to reunite with their children in the U.S.

The government only released limited details about the families due to privacy concerns. It marks the first time the Biden administrationís Family Reunification Task Force has announced a concrete product of its work since it was established at the beginning of his term in January.

"This is just the beginning," Mayorkas said. We continue to work tirelessly to reunite many more children with their parents in the weeks and months ahead. We have a lot of work still to do. But I am proud of the progress we have made, and the reunifications that we have helped to achieve this week."

1. They better have a big photo op of a reunion or two

Put it on social media.
Democrats have always had a problem with touting their own accomplishments. Biden is reversing a lot of that. Making people aware how his vaccination rollout is going better than he even predicted is one example.

I also think they should be putting out publicity ads that not only show reunions, and other improvements, but they should start those ads with images and info about life in those camps under Trump. We have to start running campaign ads for 2022 and 24 now.
