FILE- In this Oct. 26, 2018, file photo U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen takes a look at a plaque adorning a newly fortified border wall structure in Calexico, Calif. In a Wednesday, Nov. 28, letter to the heads of the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Homeland Security, 112 civil liberties and immigrant rights groups, child welfare advocates and privacy activists are crying foul, demanding an immediate halt to what they call an illegal practice. HHS and DHS are obtaining information from detained children on their U.S.-based relatives for reunification, the authors complain, and “using that data to find, arrest and deport those families.” Already, they write, “families have become too scared to step forward to sponsor children.” (AP Photo/Gregory Bull, File)
