Over the last month, a group of lawyers and advocates working to reunite migrant children and parents who were separated during the Trump administration were able to successfully track down the parents of 105 kids, NBC News reports.

In a court filing on Wednesday, the lawyers said they are still searching for the parents of 506 children, and believe that in 322 of those cases, the parents have likely been deported. Many migrant parents have agreed to leave the United States so their children can claim asylum, the lawyers said.
