A group of immigrant rights protesters has blocked a bus carrying immigrant children outside a U.S. -Mexico border processing facility.
The Trump administration's separation of immigrant families on the border has stoked an outcry from immigrant and children's advocates and many lawmakers. After initially claiming he could not change the policy, President Donald Trump signed an executive order last week that amended it, although it's not clear that family separations will fully end.
In recent weeks, more than 2,300 children were taken from their families under a "zero-tolerance" policy in which people entering the US illegally face prosecution, according to The Associated Press.
"The United States government knows the location of all children in its custody and is working to reunite them with their families", the Health Department said in a statement.
"They're not separated for a day or two days".
Images of children in metal cages, and audio of young migrants crying out for their parents, sparked protests and drew worldwide condemnation from world leaders and organisations.
The fate of 2,300 children wrested from their parents at the USA border with Mexico remained unclear Friday two days after Donald Trump ordered an end to migrant family separations, as the president accused Democrats of spinning "phony" tales of suffering for electoral gain.
Trump's tweet, GOP aides said, could make the task of corralling votes for the bill significantly more hard, though House Republican leaders said negotiations would continue.

Rep. Darren Soto said the decision by the facility's administrators to deny Nelson and Wasserman Schultz access earlier made him wonder what they were hiding. Some parents said they did not even know where their children were.
Doubts remain over the logistics of reuniting them all, however, with some parents having been unable to get in touch with their children as they are being held in different containment camps hundreds of miles away.
