Washington, September 7 (RHC)-- In immigration news in the U.S., nearly 500 children remain separated from their parents, more than a month after a court-imposed deadline mandating the Donald Trump administration reunite all children immigration officials forcibly separated from their parents at the border. 

Court papers filed Thursday reveal 497 children are still in U.S. custody.  Twenty-two of the children are under the age of five.  California Congressmember Barbara Lee slammed the administration for failing to reunite the children and their parents, tweeting: "This is government sanctioned child abuse.  It's a violation of human rights.  And it's another stain on our nation's soul."
