"We are happy that the first four families will be reunified this week, but this is only the beginning of a very long process involving more than 5,500 children," @ACLU’s @leegelernt said.…

Thank you, Bryan, for sharing your story.
After three years, Bryan will be reunited this week with his mom, who was deported after they were separated by the Trump administration in 2017. Three other families will also be reunited this week. More in our latest reporting here, with @JuliaEAinsley.…
Last night I mentioned to @maddow that Bryan, who was separated from his mom by Trump over three years ago and will be reunited this week, graduated HS early and just got a job working for a pro bono legal service provider for migrant kids. Here’s more details, from @ImmDef.

NEW: I first met Anna, a U.S. citizen, and her undocumented mom at start of Trump admin. Checked in with them as she gets ready to graduate HS. They feel safer, but worry border politics could hurt her folks' chance at citizenship under Biden, leaving them at risk of separation.
Anna and her family will share more of their story tomorrow on @MeetThePress Reports, streaming Thursday at 8PM ET on @NBCNewsNow and available on demand Friday on @peacockTV.
Anna tells me she’ll be watching President Biden’s address to Congress tonight.

NEW: A climate change fueled
“megadrought” is putting L.A.’s water supply at risk, and the city has a plan to become “water independent” — by recycling wastewater. Whether you call it toilet-to-tap or showers-to-flowers, I drank it. Delicious. #EarthDay
Cheers, everybody. It’s actually remarkable to see the advanced process — micro-filtration, reverse osmosis, and UV disinfectant. Loved doing this story and learning more. I hope you’ll watch.
True, but only after some advanced cleaning by the good people of @LACitySAN!

Forgive my dad-wear, but tomorrow on @TODAYshow and @MSNBC I’ll be live, back at this spot, for #EarthDay. Any guesses where?

Here’s a clue: we’ll take you inside one city’s ambitious plan to prevent running out of water in the face of climate change.
Another clue.
It is not a waterslide, no.
