Thousands More Migrant Children Separated by Trump Administration, Feds Reveal
Adrees Latif/ReutersThousands more migrant children were separated from their parents by the Trump administration than was previously known—and the authorities don't know what happened to many of them, a government watchdog said Thursday.

The inspector general for the Department of Health and Human Services released a report concluding that the government took thousands of migrant youths away from parents who crossed the U.S. southern border before the "family separation" policy was formally instituted in spring 2018. That's on top of the approximately 3,000 children separated from families over the summer under the policy that was withdrawn after national condemnation. But separations didn't completely stop, the report found, having continued at a reduced rate for the rest of the year.

"We don't have any information on those children who were released prior to the court order," an official from the HHS Office of Inspector General said on a call Thursday, noting that "more children over a longer period of time" were separated.
