Washington, July 4 (RHC)-- In the United States, the Department of Health and Human Services is refusing to disclose how many migrant children separated from their parents at the border they are still holding. 

Last week, HHS Secretary Alex Azar said 2,047 separated minors were still in the care of the Office of Refugee Resettlement.  But the department has refused to give updated numbers even though the Trump administration is facing a July 10 court-imposed deadline to reunite all separated children under the age of five with their parents.
