MILWAUKEE -- The Trump Administration is releasing a plan for reuniting immigrant families separated at the border.

CNN reports the Department of Homeland Security officials say nearly 2,000 children are still being held in federal facilities after being separated from their parents.

Under the new plan, families will be reunited after the parents' deportation proceedings are completed.

If the parents have to be deported, they will be reunited with their children before being removed from the country.

If the parents stay in the United States, they will have to apply to serve as their child's sponsor.

It is still unclear whose responsibility it will be to connect parents with their children.
