The U.S. government is still trying to track down the parents of 545 children who were separated from them at the U.S.-Mexico border. That's according to a court filing from the Justice Department and the American Civil Liberties Union.

The majority of those parents may have been deported to their home countries.

The filing said non-government groups have been trying to reunify the families. But the pandemic has slowed down the efforts. 

The Trump administration ended the family separation policy in 2018. A federal judge then ordered the government to reunite all of the separated families.
