Civil groups lead efforts to reunite children with deported parents
By Maria Benevento

In early April, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a "zero-tolerance" policy to refer for prosecution all migrants crossing the border illegally, even families and people seeking asylum. The government fell far short of 100 percent prosecution, and chose not to refer thousands of adults without children, according to a July 24 report from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), which analyses government data. But the policy led to thousands of parents being referred for prosecution and separated from their children, who couldn't be detained with them in criminal custody
