    About 500 migrant children who were separated from their parents at the US-Mexico border have been reunited with their families.

    That figure comes from the Associated Press News agency which is quoting a Trump administration official.

    Since May, more than 2,000 children have been taken from their parents after they crossed the border illegally.

     

    Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports now from the front line of the crisis at the southern US border.
