WASHINGTON (Reuters) - All migrant children under age 5 who are eligible will be reunified with their parents by early on Thursday morning, a Trump administration official said on Wednesday.

A federal judge had ordered the government to reunite by Tuesday children under 5 who had been separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border.
