'A chaotic day': Officials and nonprofits try to reunite toddlers separated from parents
Ever Reyes Mejia held his son for the first time since they were separated months ago, and pressed his forehead against the smiling toddler's face. They stood outside a US Customs and Immigration Center in Michigan, Mejia clutching his son's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles backpack.

The government earlier said it won't be able to reunite all those children by the deadline.
