3 young kids reunited with family in Michigan

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Two young boys and a girl who were separated from their families at the U.S.-Mexico border months ago have been reunited with their Honduran fathers in Michigan.
  
Abril Valdes (A'-bruhl VAL'-dez) with the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan says the families were reunited Tuesday at a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Grand Rapids. The parents will be free while their cases wind through immigration court, and they're expected to be required to wear ankle monitors.
  
Their release is among the first of at least 54 children younger than 5 who are expected to be reunited with their parents by a court-ordered deadline.
  
Valdes says her client, Ever Reyes Mejia (EV'-er RAY'-ehs muh-HEE'-uh), and the other two fathers "were hugging and loving their" children and telling the kids that "they were never going to be separated again."
