BBC: The Trump administration says it has reunited more than 1,800 migrant children with family members by a court-ordered deadline.

This includes 1,442 children back with their parents in US immigration custody and 378 others released in “appropriate circumstances”, says a court filing.

But more than 700 children are not “eligible” to be reunited, including 431 with parents no longer in the US.

Officials separated more than 2,500 children from undocumented adults.

The government instituted the policy in a “zero tolerance” crackdown on illegal immigration at the border with Mexico earlier this year.
