More than two dozen Democratic U.S. House members toured the same processing center earlier that day.

Many of them were children and teens who ended up in USA custody, away from their relatives.

Some parents struggled to get in touch with youngsters being held in many cases hundreds of kilometres away, in places like NY and the Chicago area.

Colyer spokesman Kendall Marr said the state "does not manage or have control over" The Villages' contract but can inspect its homes to ensure that they meet state standards.

Another illegal immigrant mother says she's allowed two 10-minute phone calls a week with her children - and sometimes the phone is broken and makes her redial, wasting precious time she could be talking with her kids.

But Marr said it's unfair for Democrats to accuse Colyer of "colluding with the Trump administration" when they don't have "any sort of evidence".

The White House on Friday also accused media and opposition Democrats of pushing an agenda by misrepresenting a photograph linked to the policy.

"We can not allow our country to be overrun by illegal immigrants", the president tweeted. According to AP reports, more than 2,300 children were taken from their families at the border in recent weeks.

He bowed to public pressure and reversed the policy earlier this week.

On Wednesday, President Trump signed an executive order reversing his policy and allowing parents and their children to stay together. "There have not been a lot of answers", Henry Lucero, a director of field operations, confessed at a forum in Weslaco, Texas.

Doubts remain over the logistics of reuniting them all, however, with some parents having been unable to get in touch with their children as they are being held in different containment camps hundreds of miles away. "But 89 percent of those who "strongly disapprove" of the job the president is doing say the administration is too aggressive".

They were brought back together around 2:30 a.m.at Baltimore-Washington International Airport in Maryland, hours after the government relented.

The mother, Beata Mariana de Jesus Mejia-Mejia, had filed for political asylum after crossing the border with her son, Darwin, following a trek from Guatemala. She sued to regain custody and the Department of Justice agreed to release the boy. "Thankfully I will see him again in heaven".

Denis Varela said he hasn't heard from his wife or daughter in nearly three weeks. He was referring to a Getty Images picture of a Honduran toddler at the border, sobbing as her mother was searched and detained. Varela was told they are in McAllen, but nothing else.

Award-winning Getty Images photographer John Moore took the photo and said Ruiz and the other agents acted professionally that night. "They are permanently separated". Bob Menendez spoke by phone to an immigrant separated from his family.

Trump's comments on immigration this week have roiled the debate in Congress, where House Republican leaders were attempting to pass legislation that could satisfy conservatives and moderates.

Trump also lashed out at media coverage of the border separations, dismissing "phoney stories of sadness and grief" while asserting the real victims of the nation's immigration crisis are Americans killed by those who cross the border unlawfully.

At an immigration detention facility in Port Isabel, Texas, attorney Jodi Goodwin has been trying to help reunite families.

"Your loved ones have not died in vain", he told the group of so-called Angel Families at the White House.

The United Nations human rights office said Trump's decision to stop separating families doesn't go far enough.

Shamdasani urged the U.S.to overhaul its migration policy, such as by relying on "non-custodial and community-based alternatives" under the "logic of care" rather than that of law enforcement. A group of NY delegates checked in on the center Friday.
