The Biden administration will announce on Tuesday plans to identify and reunite hundreds of families who were separated at the U.S.-Mexico border by the Trump administration and remain apart years later.
Biden will create a new task force to reunite families through an executive order, following through on a campaign promise to undo some of the damage inflicted by the Trump administration’s most controversial immigration policy. Biden officials did not yet have details on the scale or timing of the reunification effort, but said that the task force would make recommendations on how separated parents and children could be brought back together.
