Judge stops deprtationsA federal judge ordered the Trump administration on Monday to temporarily stop the deportation of families for at least a week after reuniting them.

The Trump administration is currently in the process of reuniting about 2,500 children with the parents it separated them from at the border, many of them under a zero tolerance policy cracking down on illegal border crossings. It is still working to determine who is the parent for 71 of those children, a government official said in court on Monday.

Judge Dana Sabraw ordered the government last month to halt those separations and reunite the families it already split up, with a deadline of July 10 for children under age 5 and July 26 for children 5 years old and up.

He said on Monday that those reunifications need to happen as quickly as possible, admonishing Trump administration officials who pushed for a lengthy screening process for parents that he said could lead to families being separated for months. Sabraw said his order to temporarily halt deportations of newly-reunited families should not slow or stop the process.
