For the past weeks, most of the country looked in horror as the Trump administration's zero-tolerance policy led to hundreds of children being ripped apart from their families at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Though President Trump issued an executive order to stop separating families — a fix for a problem his own administration created — there's still about 2,000 children who have not been reunited with their loved ones. A federal judge ruled on Wednesday that immigration officials must reunite families within 30 days.
This zero-tolerance policy and its aftermath is part of the Trump administration's push to change the U.S. immigration system. In the last year alone, the administration unsuccessfully tried to end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, gave immigration judges case quotas, and blocked most survivors of domestic violence from receiving asylum.
