Hundreds of families are still being separated at the border

Eight months after a federal judge ordered the Trump administration to stop separating parents and children at the US-Mexico border, families are still being separated. Newly released government data shows nearly 250 parents have been separated from their children since June 26. Meanwhile, a report released Thursday from the advocacy group Texas Civil Rights Project suggests that those separations might be dwarfed by the number of other relatives — siblings, aunts and uncles, grandparents, cousins — who bring a child to the US without her parents and are then separated from her by immigration agents.
