    A federal task force in the United States has been set up to reunite migrant children and their parents at detention facilities on the Mexican border.

    US President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday that ended his administration's policy of separating families at the border.

    Roughly 2,300 children were taken in recent weeks by US Border Control.
