    Court settlement to reunite 2,700 Central American children with parents in U.S.

    APRIL 12, 2019 / 7:10 PM / UPDATED AN HOUR AGO

    Court settlement paves way to reunite Central American children with parents in U.S.

    (Reuters) - The Trump administration has agreed to allow approximately 2,700 children living in Central America to be reunited with their parents in the United States under a court settlement announced on Friday, according to court documents.

    The settlement follows a lawsuit that challenged a decision in 2017 by President Donald Trump’s administration to shut down a program that allowed children living in Central America to be reunited with parents residing legally in the United States.


    The Central American Minors program, which began in 2014, allowed parents living legally in the United States to request refugee status for their children residing in Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.


    Many of the parents are in the United States under the so-called temporary protected status, which allows immigrants from countries that have suffered natural disasters, civil conflicts or other problems to stay in the United States.


    Last month, U.S. Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler in San Francisco ordered the government to resume processing children who had been conditionally approved for the program when it was terminated by the Trump administration.


    The settlement, which must be approved by a judge, requires the government to finish processing children who were in the final stages of their applications when the program was ended, the International Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP), which represented the plaintiffs, said in a statement.

    It said the government anticipates most applicants will be approved and allowed to travel to the United States.


    “We are so pleased that after many years apart our clients will finally have the opportunity to reunite with each other in safety,” IRAP attorney Linda Evarts said in the statement.

    “These families belong together here in the United States, and we are hopeful this settlement will allow for their swift reunification,” she said.


    The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency, which signed the settlement, did not immediately respond to a request for comment, nor did the U.S. Justice Department.

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    NO send their parents back home and reunite them there!

    I do not want to pay for their school, welfare, food stamps and healthcare!

    This stuff just isn't making a lick of sense! Why would the Trump administration agree to such? Is this our new Attorney General's way of doing business? The Trump administration should have fought this tooth and nail!

    The illegals have us coming and going. An illegal brings a child to the border and gets a free pass into the country or an illegal can sneak across our border and legally claim refugee status for his children and bring them here from Central America. Remember, most of those here under TPS came here illegally. Please, someone explain to me how this makes sense.

    The Trump administration is a horrible failure in dealing with our immigration problems!

    Our former AG, Jeff Sessions, ended the program but now our current AG, Barr, thinks it's fine and dandy? IMO, Trump's firing of Jeff Sessions was a serious dagger to the heart!

    It makes perfect sense for those of us who have come out of our denial, and admitted that Trump is a con artist, that his entire campaign was a lie, that he had no intention of doing what he campaigned on. Then, and only then will what is happening start to make sense.
