Monday Morning Briefing: U.S. says it is working to reunite 2,053 children with families

Highlights

The U.S. government still has 2,053 children in its custody who were separated from their parents under Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy and officials said there was a “well coordinated” process for reuniting families.

Chinese and European Union officials both agreed to oppose unilateralism and trade protectionism during talks in Beijing on a bilateral investment agreement, taking a swipe at Trump’s campaign of punitive tariffs.

Commentary: As the former U.S. ambassador to the Holy See – and a migrant who once also faced the fear of being separated from my family – I have to speak out: the way U.S. officials have used the Bible to justify inhumane immigration policies is antithetical to America and its faith traditions, writes Miguel H. Díaz. "American democracy cannot survive and thrive unless we resist the temptation to demonize our fellow human beings."
