WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Trump administration will soon begin fingerprinting parents claiming custody of children who enter the US illegally without an adult relative, prompting criticism that children may be abandoned by those who fear being identified and deported. Currently, most parents do not fingerprint to get custody of their children. US laws and legal precedent limit the time juveniles can be detained, so those caught crossing the border alone are often released to adult sponsors in the US.
