Figures show about 2,000 minors separated from families
U.S. protocol prohibits detaining children with their parents because the children are not charged with a crime and the parents are.

  Nearly 2,000 minors have been separated from their families at the US border over a six-week period during a crackdown on illegal entries, according to Department of Homeland Security figures obtained by The Associated Press.

The figures show that 1,995 minors were separated from 1,940 adults from April 19 through May 31. The separations were not broken down by age, and they included separations for illegal entry, immigration violations or possible criminal conduct by the adult.
