Families Are Still Being Separated at the Border, Months After “Zero Tolerance” Was Reversed The Trump administration has quietly resumed separating immigrant families at the border, in some cases using vague or unsubstantiated allegations of wrongdoing or minor violations against the parents, including charges of illegally re-entering the country, as justification.
