    The Trump administration says it will not meet a Tuesday deadline to reunite all children under the age of five with their parents from whom they were separated as they crossed the US-Mexico border.

    The separations of undocumented families were ordered as part of the White House "zero-tolerance" policy.

    There is an emerging concern that authorities have simply lost track of the children.
