SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- The Trump administration has seven days to meet a judge's order to reunite separated families that have children under the age of five. 

Casa Cornelia, a non-profit organization in San Diego, confirms they are working several separation cases. The non-profit provides legal assistance to victims of human and civil rights violations. For privacy reasons, the staff members couldn't specify how many cases they are working. 

Halfway to the deadline, the Trump administration hasn't said how many families have been reunited. 

Last week, the Department of Health and Human Services confirmed 2,047 minors were in their care. The department did not provide an updated number on Monday because they said they are evaluating the impact of the court order and the constantly changing number of children in their care. 

The deadline to reunite all separated families is 23 days away.
