Tri-Department Plan for Stage II of Family Reunification   [open pdf - 146KB]

"The Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS), Homeland Security (DHS), and Justice (DOJ) are working rapidly to reunify children and their parents who are class members under the orders by District Judge Dana Sabraw of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California. Following successful reunification of eligible children under 5 with parents in the United States as of July 12 (Stage I), the three departments are working to reunify all eligible children over the age of 5 by July 26 (Stage II). The two stages together include all eligible parents who are or were in DHS custody, and all eligible children in HHS custody, who may have been separated at the border. Both stages include children and parents who were separated at the border by DHS to allow for the parents' prosecution under the Zero Tolerance policy, as well as children and parents separated at the border for other reasons."
