Families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border could be allowed to reunite permanently in the United States, the Biden administration said Monday.

Parents separated from their children during the Trump administration who choose to stay in the U.S. will be assisted in their efforts to “explore lawful pathways” to remain, said Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

“We are hoping to reunite the families either here or in the country of origin,” Mayorkas said at a White House news briefing, USA Today reported.

Families who choose to stay will be provided health care, transportation, legal aid and career and educational services.
