As reports swirled about the more than 2,000 migrant children had been separated from their parents at the southern border, Jonathan Blitzer wrote in The New Yorker that “No protocols have been put in place for keeping track of parents and children concurrently, for keeping parents and children in contact with each other while they are separated, or for eventually reuniting them. Immigration lawyers, public defenders, and advocates along the border have been trying to fill the void.”
