New information regarding the number of children separated at the border under the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy who have yet to be reunited with their parents has climbed from 545 to 666. According to an attorney working at the forefront to reunite families, the new number includes those “for whom the government did not provide any phone number.” Almost 20 percent of these children were under 5 when they were separated.
