Almost two weeks after a court-ordered deadline for the U.S. government to reunite migrant families who were separated at the U.S.-Mexico border, hundreds of children (between the ages of 5 and 17) have yet to return home. As of August 1, 572 children remained in separation. In Guatemala City, Getty Images photographer John Moore captured the return of nine children who were flown from New York to be reunited with their families, months after being separated by U.S. border agents. Here, a look at some of Moore's emotion-charged pictures.
