WASHINGTON – President Biden’s Interagency Task Force on the Reunification of Families launched a registration website for separated families to self-identify, reunify in the United States, and receive support services. Together.gov and Juntos.gov will help the Task Force identify and reunite families who were separated by the United States government between January 20, 2017 and January 20, 2021. The International Organization for Migration will work with the Task Force to support these efforts.
The new website allows parents to contact the U.S. government to begin the process of reunification and is available in English, Spanish, Portuguese and several Indigenous languages.
Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas serves as the Chair of the Task Force and Michelle Brané serves as the Executive Director.

Secretary Mayorkas heard directly from the families about their experiences and relayed the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to identifying a long-term status option for families.
