Annunciation House to host family reunification press conference

Ruben Garcia, director of the Annunciation House, speaks with migrant parents Tuesday, June 26, 2018, in El Paso, Texas. The migrants are some of the 32 parents separated from their children that are staying at the home as they wait to be reunited with their children.

The Annunciation House in El Paso said they're housing two undocumented parents who are still waiting to be reunited with their children.

The refugee shelter is expected to host a press conference later today regarding large scale reunification underway.

Last week the federal government had to comply with a deadline set by a California judge to reunite children under five-years-old with their undocumented parents. Undocumented families had been separated after crossing the U.S. - Mexico border under the zero tolerance policy.

U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement has until July 26 to reunite undocumented children five and older with their immigrant parents.
