There remain 545 migrant children separated upon illegal entry at the border that parents have not come to claim, and Joe Biden plans to designate a task force to study a problem the Trump administration has yet to solve.

"Joe Biden will issue an executive order creating a task force to reunite these children with their parents," Biden's campaign vowed in an ad Wednesday, Fox News reported.

The Trump administration, seeking to curb illegal immigrants using children as an excuse for entry and to cut child trafficking, pressured migrants with child separation policy, imploring parents not to subject their children to separation.

But many still did and some never came back to claim their children and still some are unaccounted for.

President Donald Trump said during the final debate the children are "so well taken care of" and his administration remains diligent in reuniting the children with their parents.

"We are extremely pleased that Vice President Biden has expressed an interest in helping the families who were torn apart by the Trump administration," ACLU attorney Lee Gelernt, the lead lawyer in the family separation lawsuit, told Fox News in a statement Thursday.

"We not only want to see the families reunited in the United States, but provided legal status given what they have been through. The families should also be provided with medical help to deal with the horrific trauma they have suffered."
