Judge Threatens to Hold Jeff Sessions in Contempt of Court Over Deportation

  • Judge orders government to turn around deportation plane

A federal judge in Washington halted a deportation in progress Thursday and threatened to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt after learning that the Trump administration started to remove a woman and her daughter while a court hearing appealing their deportations was underway.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan was not happy with Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday, when he learned that the government was trying to deport a woman and a young girl while their lawyer was literally in the process of arguing their case.

District Judge Emmet Sullivan had been assured the pair would not be deported to El Salvador before midnight Thursday. "She fled and came to the U.S. She was put in expedited removal without actually having a court hearing", said attorney Jennifer Chang-Newell.

A spokeswoman for U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement, which implements deportations, did not respond to questions about why Carmen and her daughter were removed from the country.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri to send Bakayoko on loan this summer
Either way, Bakayoko has intense competition in Cesc Fabregas, Ross Barkley, Jorginho, N'Golo Kante and possibly Mateo Kovacic . However, the new boss will have no use for the midfielder after informing the club's chiefs they loan him out for the season.

The ACLU's lawsuit says Carmen and her daughter left their native El Salvador because they feared for their lives amid extortion attempts by gang members.

The plane landed in El Salvador, but Carmen and her child were allowed to return to the United States.

The ACLU was arguing their case in court and believed the Trump administration had agreed to keep them in the US until midnight tonight.

In changing the standards for seeking asylum, Sessions said in June that 'the mere fact that a country may have problems effectively policing certain crimes, such as domestic violence or gang violence, or that certain populations are more likely to be victims of crime, can not itself establish an asylum claim'.

Klopp has great expectations Liverpool will deliver
Paul Merson believes Liverpool FC need to sign another centre-half to finally win their first Premier League title. We have to improve everything. "We are the ones who have to do more, fight more, and that must be our attitude".

But during a recess in the proceedings Thursday, she got an email from attorneys on the ground in Texas that her client, known by the pseudonym Carmen, and Carmen's daughter had been taken from their detention center that morning and deported.

The lawsuit asks the judge to invalidate Sessions' June 11 decision to restrict the kinds of cases that qualify for asylum.

She sought police protection in 2016, but they did not protect her and Grace fled Guatemala, because she felt she wouldn't be safe in the country because of her partner and his sons' gang affiliation, according to the suit.

But at the border, the government determined after interviewing her that she did not meet the "credible fear" threshold required to pursue an asylum claim in the U.S., and an immigration judge upheld that decision.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri on Courtois, Kepa and Hazard speculation
I realise the game in England is different, but I have been given fantastic references by other Spanish players in this league. Real Madrid confirmed Courtois will undergo a medical on Thursday morning before signing a six-year deal.

Sessions and other Trump appointees have dramatically shifted how the federal government speaks about asylum, going as far as to suggest in public communications the unproven claim that asylum is a routinely abused legal loophole. None of the adults had been separated from their children as part of President Trump's "zero-tolerance" policy. The reforms are already working to reduce the previously skyrocketing number of illegal aliens claiming to be "asylum seekers" after being caught by Border Patrol, but they have sent the open-borders left into a rage.
