The Trump administration separated thousands of children from their families at the border between 2017 and 2018, and 545 children remain without their families.
In a new ad, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said he plans to reunite 545 undocumented children with their families. The Biden-Harris campaign states that on day one of Biden’s presidency, he will sign an executive order to create a task force to unify the 545 undocumented children that were separated from their families at the border under the Trump administration.
Watch the ad below:
The ad comes as both Biden and President Donald Trump head out to Florida today in their last days before Election Day. Both candidates will be hosting dueling rallies.
The former vice president will appear at 1:30 p.m. at a drive-in rally in Broward County, which has the most Democratic voters in Florida. Later in the day—at 6:30 p.m.—he will be in Tampa. It remains unclear where President Trump will hold his rallies, as of yet.
This week, Floridians broke records with early voter turnout. More than 6 million people have already voted in the 2020 presidential election.
As of Oct. 26, results from Florida’s Department of State’s Division of Elections show that 2,212,655 people voted early, and 3,805,775 voted by mail. Democrats have outvoted Republicans by a 596,000 margin by mail in Florida, while Republicans only have a 230,000 edge in person.
In Florida, Democrats have continued to dominate the initial balloting, but Republicans are narrowing the gap. On Oct. 15, Democratic registrants cast 51% of all ballots reported, compared with 25% from Republicans. On Sunday, Democrats had a slightly smaller lead, 51% to 31%.
Pew Research Center shows that there are currently 5.30 million registered Democrats and 5.17 million registered Republicans in the state—an edge of about 134,000 voters in favor of the Democrats. But the size of that margin has fallen from 327,000 in 2016 and 658,000 in 2008.
