The Biden administration announced on Monday that the Family Reunification Task Force has hired an international organization to find illegal aliens, mostly Central America, and bring them back to the United States.
The administration claims the program is designed to reunite migrant families who were separated at the southern border under former President Donald Trump’s strict, “zero-tolerance” policy on illegal border crossings.
A federal task force is launching a new program Monday that officials say will expand efforts to find parents, many of whom are in remote Central American communities, and help them return to the United States, where they will get at least three years of legal residency and other assistance, according to a report in The Boston Globe.
Michelle Brané, executive director of the administration’s Family Reunification Task Force, commented:
“We recognize that we can’t make these families completely whole again. But we want to do everything we can to put them on a path towards a better life.”
