EXCLUSIVE: Botched reunifications left separated kids in vans overnight, one for 39 hours.

E-mail: "There has to be a better process. I hope... there can be adjustments so that we don't put tender age kids in this position."

@chrislhayes NEW: As we asked "where are the children?" at least 37 were eating and sleeping overnight in vans parked outside an adult detention center, some two nights, because ICE wasn't ready to reunite them. More: nbcnews.to/2JUhLA9 @allinwithchris @JuliaEAinsley @chrislhayes #inners
Hard to believe what’s in this e-mail, but it really does say 37 “tender age” separated migrant kids waited on vans for hours overnight when they were supposed to be in the arms of their parents.

Obama DHS Sec. Johnson reacts to our report about separated kids sleeping in vans during botched reunifications:

"I'm appalled. I can just envision children being stuck in a van for hours and hours. And, can I say that I'm surprised? Frankly, no."

NEW: Top Republican on @HouseCommerce @repgregwalden responds to our reporting:

“To now learn that children as young as 5 years old were left in vans for more than 24 hours is simply indefensible... I expect a prompt explanation from the DHS and HHS about this failure.”
JUST IN: Based on our reporting, @HomelandDems chair @BennieGThompson asks @OIGatHHS and @DHSOIG to investigate why 37 migrant kids had to sleep in vans overnight during botched reunifications and what has been done "to prevent similar incidents." Details: nbcnews.to/2HTsTuW
