Father and son reunited after being separated for nearly two months

SAN BENITO, TX (CNN) - A father and his four-year-old son are reunited after being separated for seven weeks.

Walter Melendez was reunited with his son Jeremy in San Benito, Texas.

The two, who are originally from El Salvador were separated when they entered the U.S. from Mexico 48 days ago.

Similar scenes played out across the country on Tuesday as federal officials reunited families.

A federal court ordered such reunions for 102 children under five years old who were separated from their parents at the border.

The Trump administration says it will not achieve that number by the expected deadline.

That’s because it is still conducting DNA tests to confirm parental relationships and many of the children’s parents have already been deported.
