Breaking news via the Washington Post who, quoting an anonymous official, said CBP will no longer prosecute “migrant parents who cross the border illegally with children.: This would be a literal “big, if true” moment:

According to the official, although the migrant families will be held in detention, they “will likely be released from custody while they await court hearings”:

DOJ spokesperson Sarah Isgur Flores pushed back on the report:

The Washington Post did update its reporting, however:

This story has been updated to clarify how migrant parents will be processed going forward.

The U.S. Border Patrol will no longer refer migrant parents who cross into the United States illegally with children to federal courthouses to face criminal charges, a senior U.S. Customs and Border Protection official told The Washington Post on Thursday.

And it’s still not quite clear what’s been changed, if anything:

“Stay tuned” indeed.
