A total of 522 children had already been reunited with parents, the agency added in a factsheet published three days after Trump ended his policy of separating families on the U.S. -Mexico border, after images of youngsters in cages triggered outrage at home and overseas.
United States president Donald Trump may have doomed the chances for a House Republican immigration bill after urging party lawmakers to abandon the compromise effort they have been working on for weeks, the media reported.
"Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solve this decades old problem".
President Donald Trump explicitly compared the tragedy of families whose relatives have been killed by undocumented immigrants to the family separations at the border, saying that the "angel families" are "permanently separated" from their family members.
The compromise legislation would provide funding for Trump's border wall, close immigration loopholes and allow for parents and children to be detained together at the border, among other provisions.
First a hardline proposal was defeated, as expected, by 193 votes to 231.
Amid confusion over Trump's efforts to roll back the policy of family separations, officials said on Thursday the U.S. military has been asked to get ready to house up to 20,000 immigrant children.
The House Republican immigration overhaul is dangling precariously.

Korean Leader Kim Jong Un Makes Official Trip to China
According to the Russian foreign ministry, Pompeo also spoke about North Korea by telephone with Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. Beijing previously sponsored the now-defunct six-party talks on North Korean denuclearization, which eventually foundered.
Protesters have confronted Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi at a showing of a documentary about children's TV host Fred Rogers, and they questioned the Republican's stands on immigration and health care.
The measure would grant young "Dreamer" immigrants who arrived in the USA illegally as children a chance for citizenship - a move many Republicans worry would enrage conservative voters who'd view it as amnesty.
That said, there is one narrow piece of immigration policy that Congress might actually be able to pass: namely, some measure that prevents immigration authorities from separating migrants from their children. "This bill accomplishes both and crucially addresses the separation of children from their parents on our border", said Rep. Denham.
The administration says it will continue with prosecutions and seek to detain families together during their immigration proceedings.
The president's comments come a day after House GOP leaders delayed a major immigration bill until at least next week, according to Reuters.
More than two dozen Democratic members of Congress visited a holding facility in Texas for separated immigrant children Saturday and described conditions as "cruel and inhumane" that bring "a great shame to a great country".
Republicans hoped to vote on that "compromise" Friday (after a far-right alternative went down in flames Thursday) - but the president appeared to dash those hopes with an early-morning tweet.
"No one has more to lose in November than the president does when it comes to the majority in the House, because if this majority flips over to being a Democrat, there will be a big push for impeachment", said Rep. Bradley Byrne, R-Ala., who opposes the immigration bill.
Goodlatte bill failed in the House, the compromsie bill won't be voted on until tomorrow. "Without having Democrats voting, there is no way you can get this done", he said.
