Hundreds of undocumented children could be reunited with their families as early as Sunday, according to a report by CBS News.

The news outlet reported that U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced that 1,800 families would be reunited this weekend.

CNN said these would be children separated mostly within the last 72 hours who were never transferred out of CBP custody when President Trump's executive order came down this week. These children are not the 2,300 to 3,000 children in the Department of Health and Human Services' custody.

President Trump said the “zero tolerance” policy will continue.

Vice President Mike Pence added that they are calling upon Congress to change the laws.

At the Marcelino Port of Entry in Tornillo, dozens of children, mainly boys are being housed in tents.
