Trump administration officials say the U.S. government knows the location of all children in its custody after separating them from their families at the border and is working to reunite them.
A fact sheet on "zero-tolerance prosecution and family reunification" released Saturday night by the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies involved in the separations also says a parent must request that their child be deported with them. In the past, the agency says, many parents elected to be deported without their children. That may be a reflection of violence or persecution they face in their home countries.
The fact sheet doesn't state how long it might take to reunite families. The Port Isabel Service Processing Center in Texas has been set up as the staging ground for the families to be reunited prior to deportation.
Migrants are finding it harder to claim asylum at U.S. ports of entry due to the facilities being overcrowded, part of an effort by U.S. officials to curb the number of migrants setting foot on U.S. territory, NBC News reported.
Under international and U.S. law, a person that has touched down on U.S. soil must legally be allowed to make a claim for asylum.
U.S. officials at the border have reportedly told families that there is no room for them at the ports of entry and that they should either wait for foot traffic to cease or come back another time.

Demonstrators are rallying and protesting over the weekend to decry the separation of immigrant parents from their children by U.S. border authorities, and Democratic lawmakers are saying they aren't convinced the Trump administration has any real plan to reunite them.
Activists, elected officials, humans rights advocates and religious leaders gathered Sunday morning at the Port of Entry in Tornillo, Texas, demanding the immediate reunification of separated families. Led by Voto Latino, the large demonstration hoped to increase the pressure on the Trump Administration.
The rally in Texas followed a day of protests around the country on Saturday. Hundreds of people, including key Florida Democrats, rallied near a Homestead, Florida, facility where more than 1,000 immigrant children are being held.

President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser said in an interview published Sunday that the administration will soon present its Israeli-Palestinian peace plan, with or without input from Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
In an interview published in the Arabic language Al-Quds newspaper, Jared Kushner appealed directly to Palestinians and criticized Abbas, who has shunned the Trump team over its alleged pro-Israel bias, particularly on the fate of contested Jerusalem.
The interview came out after a weeklong trip around the region by Kushner and Mideast envoy Jason Greenblatt. The team met with leaders of Israel, Jordan, Qatar, Egypt and Saudi Arabia to discuss the worsening humanitarian situation in Gaza and the administration's proposals for a peace deal.

Twenty-five people were injured, four of them severely, when an explosion destroyed an apartment building in the western German city of Wuppertal, police said Sunday.
Police said the explosion rocked the several-story building shortly before midnight Saturday with a large bang, scaring people in surrounding homes so much they ran out into the street in a panic. The detonation was so severe it destroyed the building's attic and the top three floors, the German news agency dpa reported.
Fire then broke out in several different parts of the apartment building and firefighters had trouble dousing the flames because parts of the building kept collapsing. They were able to rescue four severely injured from inside the building and sent them to the hospital. Another 21 people were slightly injured and treated by emergency staff at the scene.

Republican apprehension over President Donald Trump's next tweet and fear of riling conservative voters is undermining GOP leaders' election-year struggle to shove an immigration bill through the House this week, leaving their prospects dubious.
Party leaders are trying to finally secure the votes they need for their wide-ranging bill with tweaks they hope will goose support from the GOP's dueling conservative and moderate wings. But more importantly, wavering Republicans want Trump to provide political cover for immigration legislation that's despised by hard-right voters. His recent statements on their bill and history of abruptly flip-flopping on past health care and spending measures have not been reassuring.
