(CNN)We haven’t seen their faces. We don’t know their names. We only know a number: 711.

That’s how many immigrant kids from separated families remain in custody, according to the latest government tally.
Officials say that, for various reasons, their families weren’t eligible for reunification by Thursday’s deadline. They might be in the future, although a former head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement warned this week that some of the children might never see their parents again.
What happens to these kids could vary greatly depending on each individual case. Attorneys are still battling over the next steps in court.
