Reminder: The consequences of family separation will far out-last this administration. Watch one family's reunion after months of separation. #FamiliesBelongTogether

BREAKING: Tonight the Trump administration filed documents that don’t dispute the recent report that there may have been thousands more separated kids. They’re arguing it would take too long to figure out where those kids are because they have no tracking system.
