Reunited immigrant children scooped up into parents' arms

Source: AP

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Lugging little backpacks, smiling immigrant children were scooped up into their parents’ arms Tuesday as the Trump administration scrambled to meet a court-ordered deadline to reunite dozens of youngsters forcibly separated from their families at the border.

The three fathers were “just holding them and hugging them and telling them that everything was fine and that they were never going to be separated again,” said immigration lawyer Abril Valdes.

One of the fathers, Ever Reyes Mejia, walked out of the ICE center carrying his beaming son and the boy’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles backpack. The boy was secured in a booster seat, and father and son were driven away. Lawyers said the fathers were too distraught to speak to the news media.

In Grand Rapids, the children were “absolutely thrilled to be with their parents again. It’s all confusing to them why there’s so many people here and why there’s so many strangers here, but they know that they’re safe,” Valdes said outside the ICE offices.

2. FINALLY!

We still have more to reunite and yes...find! Some are still lost since they were never considered worthy of reunification since they are "brown". Miller and his SS Nazis are only concerned with picking up their $80 sushi order and getting out of the restaurant without being spotted by people with souls and hearts.
