Parents at the US-Mexico border, who were separated from their children, now have a week’s time to make the difficult decision whether have their child remain in the US to pursue a possible right to stay permanently in the United States, or to be deported with their child.
Dana Sabraw, the federal judge who granted the halt said, "That just shouldn't be happening. There's no reason that I can think of where that can result in unhinging the reunifications underway."
The families had been separated in a broader crackdown on illegal immigration by US President Donald Trump's administration, sparking an international outcry.
