Judge ex­tends rul­ing to more bor­der fam­i­lies

The Tribune (SLO) - - News -

A fed­eral judge who or­dered that over 2,700 chil­dren be re­united with their par­ents on Fri­day ex­panded his au­thor­ity to po­ten­tially thou­sands more chil­dren who were sep­a­rated at the bor­der ear­lier dur­ing the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion.

Dana Sabraw ruled that his au­thor­ity ap­plies to any par­ents who were sep­a­rated at the bor­der on or af­ter July 1, 2017. Pre­vi­ously his or­der ap­plied only to par­ents whose chil­dren were in cus­tody on June 26, 2018.

The judge will con­sider the next steps on March 28. A Jus­tice Depart­ment spokesman did not im­me­di­ately re­spond to a re­quest for com­ment.
