13. Maybe the Organisation of American States (OAS)


This makes sense as the Central American countries, Mexico and the US are members.

It is very sad to write, but after this atrocity, the US might not be trusted enough in South and Central American for us to manage that process. Consider that some parents have already been deported - even though many fled because their lives were atr risk there. The first two steps on this logically is to create two detailed data bases. One with all the information we have on the children - including who their parents are from those old enough to provide that information. The other, all the information from the parents including as much information and documentation of their missing kids.

This is a mess of the United States' making. It is mindboggling that only now - weeks later - that they are "creating a task force" to figure out how to reunite the kids. To put this in context, imagine a new dry cleaner which would take your clothes, giving you no receipt and not tagging the clothes as they put them in their pile of clothes. It would never happen because people have the ability to refuse - unlike the families at the border. It shows intent to cause pain that a government process was created like this. One thing government has always done is to create paperwork. Here, they did less, than a popup event would do for a one time coat check!

If reuniting the kids was done in good faith - you would expect that of the 2000 plus kids, a fair portion would be able to provide identify information that would match the information provided by the parents. However, there likely will be many parents that will be in hiding somewhere. The DNA process might be needed to correctly match the kids with their parents.
