Deported Asylum-Seekers Brought Back On Angry Judge's Orders

Judge Orders Plane Carrying Deported Mother And Child Turned Around

Judge Sullivan ruled the El Salvadorans be kept in America indefinitely with an order that included the highly unusual addition of threatening the attorney general of the United States with contempt if "Carmen" and her daughter were removed.

It all stems back to a mother, known in court filings as only "Carmen".

In addition to ordering the government to get the mother and daughter back, Sullivan blocked the Trump administration from deporting eight other immigrants - now held in detention - who are part of the same lawsuit against the government for allegedly wrongfully rejecting their claims for asylum.

"This is pretty outrageous", U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan said after he was informed about the flight, the Post said. "Somebody in pursuit of justice in a United States court is just - is spirited away while her attorneys are arguing for justice for her?"

"He said something like, 'I'm going to issue an order to show cause why I shouldn't hold the government in contempt, I'm going to start with the attorney general, ' " Chang Newell said, explaining that Sullivan was suggesting he would issue an order that would require the government to explain why they didn't deserve to be held in contempt. "This is not acceptable". He said any delay in bringing them back would be intolerable.

In June, Sessions vacated a 2016 Board of Immigration Appeals court case that granted asylum to an abused woman from El Salvador.

Justice Department attorney Erez Reuveni said he had not been told the deportation was happening that morning and could not confirm the whereabouts of Carmen and her daughter.

Trump vows to double steel and aluminum tariffs on Turkey
The new US tariffs on Turkey are against the rules set by the World Trade Organization (WTO), the Trade Ministry said on Friday. Unfortunately, this still isn't a good reason for Trump's latest trade action - because it is an illegal one.

The suit also says asylum adjudicators are required to ignore federal appellate decisions that conflict with the new credible fear policies, "thus purporting to make the immigration authorities the ultimate arbiters of the law".

Law&Crime reached out to the Justice Department for comment, but they have yet to respond.

Carmen fled El Salvador with her daughter in June, according to court records, fearing they would be killed by gang members who had demanded she pay them monthly or suffer consequences.

The ACLU represents 12 people in the suit, including three children, from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, who had entered the US and sought asylum, but were been denied in a preliminary interview used to establish a "credible fear" of returning home.

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 United States, and an immigration judge upheld that decision. It challenges a recent tightening on standards for seeking US asylum, which makes it far more hard for those fleeing domestic or gang violence to win the right to remain in the United States. The case is part of an ongoing legal battle over asylum claims.

From there, Sessions has argued, asylum-seekers are typically released into the interior of the country while they await hearings, often years away.
