Featured Over 150 Migrant Children Still in US Far from Their Parents

Washington, Nov 22 (Prensa Latina) Almost 150 immigrant children are still in the United States away from their parents as victims of the criticized practices of President Donald Trump's government on this issue, according to official data.

A report released by the Department of Health and Human Services pointed out that exactly 147 minors are in federal custody almost five months after a court order for family reunification.

Due to the rejected policy of 'zero tolerance' towards undocumented immigrants, 2,667 children were separated from their parents.

The administration initially identified 2,654 affected by the situation, but it recently increased that number by 13.

The source stated that 30 of the parents had been declared ineligible for the union considering their criminal record, although some, according to civil organizations, committed minor offenses without affecting their ability to care for their descendants.
