This Monday the White House has announced via the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said:

“We are hoping to reunite the families, either here or in their country of origin. We hope to be in a position to give them the election. And if, in fact they seek to reunite here in the United States, we will explore lawful pathways for them to remain in the United States, and to address the family needs.”

In the Trump administration more than 2,800 families were separated because of it’s Zero tolerance policy that declared that any adult caught crossing the border illegally had to be prosecuted for illegal entry.

In January zero tolerance policy was rescinded and so far 105 families have been already reunited by the Biden administration.
