“The Task Force is actively working to develop a system for processing and reunifying over a thousand families and to set up a system to provide mental health support and stability to thousands more families who are here in the United States and still trying to heal from the trauma caused by their separation,” the spokesperson said. “This is only the beginning,...with the private sector and with the NGOs, attorneys, and advocates who have done tremendous work in support of these families.”
“Advocates for the families are seeking to have them reunited inside the U.S., provided with compensation and social services, and granted permanent legal status to remain in the U.S.,” NBC News continued, adding that “The DHS spokesperson did not address whether the Biden administration’s system for providing “stability” would incorporate any of these specific measures.”
“The key will be that the Biden administration stays the course because there is a lot to do,” said Gelernt. “It is one thing to get a few families back, but a whole other thing to scale up the process so it works smoothly for more than 1,000 families who remain separated, not to mention getting benefits for the thousands of others who need them.”
