Government Falls Short Of Family Reunification Deadline

The government will not meet a deadline to reunite around 100 migrant children with their parents. Officials say a deadline yesterday was only partially fulfilled with 38 kids being reunited with their families. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw had concluded that 63 of the group of about 100 kids must be reunited by yesterday.  He said any failure in the effort must be documented in a written report by Thursday and discussed the following day in court.  He said yesterday's deadline and the July 26th deadline for reunifying the 3,000 other kids "are firm deadlines, not aspirational goals."
