The government “knows the location of all children in its custody as well as also will be working to reunite them with their families,” the department said in a statement.

After weeks of public pressure, Mr. Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday meant to end the separation of families at the border by detaining them together for an indefinite period instead.

The separations began after the federal government announced in April in which in which could pursue a “zero tolerance” policy of criminally prosecuting every adult who illegally crossed the border or tried to do so.
