DOJ Says It Might Have Detained Child of US Citizen

The Department of Justice in a court filing Tuesday said it might have detained the child of a U.S. citizen, USA Today reports.

One child "cannot be reunified at this time because the parent's location has been unknown for more than a year," the filing read. "Defendants are unable to conclusively determine whether the parent is a class member, and records show the parent and child might be U.S. citizens."

The filing was made in the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of California. The child is under the age of five.

A spokesperson for the Department of Justice told Splinter it could not "provide information outside of the filing."

More than 2,000 children were separated from their parents by U.S. immigration authorities at the border this spring before President Donald Trump reversed course on his zero-tolerance policy in June amid an international outcry.

Late last month, U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw set deadlines of July 10 to reunite children under 5 years old with their parents and July 26 for older children, but the DOJ on Monday said it expected to only reunify 38 of 102 children.
