The Biden administration has made it their duty to find the parents of separated migrant children...

And it seems things are looking up for the families...

After spending so long apart.

Here's the full story...

Now, Biden has thrown himself into his new role with gusto.

Over a month after his move to the White House, the newly-elected president has been busy dismantling a whole array of controversial Trump-era regulations.

For example...

Mere hours after his inauguration ceremony, Biden fulfilled one of his top campaign promises by pledging to put the U.S. back in the Paris Agreement on climate change - an international pact aimed at curbing emissions that cause global warming.

Trump famously withdrew from the agreement in 2017, citing costs to American taxpayers.

And as for the country's ongoing racial division?

Well, Biden has already got to work on putting the pieces back together.

He first signed an executive order to promote racial equity.

Biden ordered his government to conduct equity assessments of its agencies and reallocate resources to "advance equity for all, including people of color and others who have been historically underserved, marginalized and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality."

He then reversed Trump's infamous ban on U.S. entry from majority-Muslim countries.

Biden's proclamation reversed Trump's policy that barred entry to the U.S. for refugees and residents from 7 predominantly Muslim countries and orders plans within forty-five days for resuming visa processing.

And now, there's been some positive news surrounding the separated migrant families...

Getty

It was reported Wednesday that the lawyers have found the parents of 105 children so far in just over a month.

And people are amazed...

The committee, who are working tirelessly, said they are still trying to find the parents of the other 506 children...

Getty

But they are headed in the right direction.

The lawyers said the parents of about 322 of the 506 children are believed to have been deported...

Getty

Making it more difficult to find them.

The Biden administration has formed the task force specifically to find the missing parents...

Getty

Under the "zero-tolerance policy" of 2018.

The lawyers representing the separated families will be working alongside the task force.

Getty

It is expected to "resolve many — if not all — outstanding issues" related to the lawsuit that resulted in the reunification process.

One reason it has been so hard to find the parents is that many agreed to deportation in order for their children to gain asylum here in the U.S..

Lawyer Lee Gelernt, the deputy director of the American Civil Liberties Union's Immigrants' Rights Project, has said the task force should commit to bringing the deported parents back to the U.S. in order for the families to reunite.
