"Tell people not to come to our country illegally", he said.

San Diego Judge Dana Sabraw on Monday gave the government more time to reunite the 102 children, among more than 2,300 minors split from their families as a effect of Donald Trump's "zero tolerance" policy that saw parents prosecuted for illegally crossing the border.

Before departing the White House for Europe, Trump said, "That's the solution". He also set July 26 as the deadline to reunite almost 3,000 children over age 5.

Sabraw also asked the American Civil Liberties Union, which brought the lawsuit that led to Sabraw's June order, to file papers on Thursday suggesting remedies if the government had not reunified the 63 children by Tuesday "or within immediate proximity of today".

"Things have taken a real step forward", Gelernt said. Trump was forced to stop separating families last month after facing public outcry and a court challenge.

This morning, staff members at a nonprofit organization that has been housing numerous youngest children "made sure every backpack was full and every child got a hug and a goodbye", Southwest Key CEO Juan Sanchez said.

Parents in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody "for the most part" are being taken to locations near their children and the families will be released, Justice Department attorney Sarah Fabian said in court.

Thousands of babies, toddlers and older children were separated from their parents at the border this spring before Trump reversed course on June 20 amid an global outcry over the images of youngsters in chain-link cages and audio recordings of children crying.

More than 2,000 children were separated from their parents by US immigration authorities at the border this spring before Trump reversed course on June 20 amid an worldwide outcry.

The San Diego Judge said he was sticking with deadlines he set last month.

Government lawyers had argued that all parents and children should be tested.

"These are firm deadlines".

Sabraw also said fingerprinting other adults in the household shouldn't be required and that legal orientation training could occur after reunification, not before, as the government wanted.

The government had asked Sabraw to extend the deadlines because it needed time to test DNA to confirm family relationships, run background checks, find parents who were released from custody and review parental fitness. As a result, the number of children eligible to be reunited has shifted in recent days as the government has discovered some individuals were not parents as they claimed or had criminal records.

"Reunifications are ongoing throughout the day", said Chris Meekins, a senior official of the Department of Health and Human Services.

The government wants to change the settlement so it can detain families together. But the government does not have the room: ICE has three family detention centers with space for 3,000 people, and they are already at or near capacity, though the Trump administration is trying to line up space at military bases. A longtime court settlement says children who cross the border illegally can not be detained for more than 20 days.
