Judge Threatens to Hold Jeff Sessions in Contempt for Deportation

The ACLU is suing Jeff Sessions over the Trump administration’s asylum policies

Judge orders government to turn around deportation plane

Sullivan said he would hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and Homeland Security officials in contempt for the deportation if they did not comply with his demand.

As the Post reports, Judge Sullivan ordered the government to "turn the plane around".

Officials reportedly said the plane was on its way back to the USA later in the day. In this case, eight asylum-seekers represented by the American Civil Liberties Union and Center for Gender and Refugee Studies filed a suit against Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security officials over policies that they argued could lead to swift deportation to countries where they would face extreme persecution. The deported mother and daughter were en route back to the USA later Thursday. By Thursday evening, the mother and her daughter had landed in El Salvador.

During a brief recess, she told her colleagues the pair had been taken from a family detention center in Dilley, Tex., to the airport in San Antonio for a morning flight. Instead they were flown back to Houston.

Carmen and her daughter were not separated when they crossed the border, but their chances of remaining in the US were slim after she failed a "credible fear" test created to determine whether her asylum claim could be honored.

Membership in what bureaucrats described decades ago as a "particular social group" also qualifies.

Carmen is one of several witnesses suing the Trump administration after Sessions announced in June that domestic and gang violence were not credible asylum claims.

Sullivan, who sits on the US court in the District of Columbia, threatened to hold Sessions in contempt of court.

All 12 of the ACLU's lawsuit plaintiffs would have been permitted to stay under the old rules. It challenges a recent policy change by the Department of Justice that aims to expedite the removal of asylum seekers who fail to prove their cases and excludes domestic and gang violence as justifications for granting asylum in the United States. 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. Many disappear instead of showing up.

He also ordered the government to stop removing people from the country who are seeking protection from gang and domestic violence.

"In its rush to deport as many immigrants as possible, the Trump administration is putting these women and children in grave danger of being raped, beaten, or killed".
