by I'm Struggling
Getty Images/Spencer Platt The Trump administration has not been providing advance notice of the time and location of family reunifications, the American Civil Liberties Union claims. The lack of communication resulted in “troubling situations,” including one where a mother was stranded at a bus stop with a six-month-old infant after being reunited, the ACLU alleged.
