Judge Orders Plane Carrying Deported Mother And Child Turned Around

Judge Orders Plane Carrying Deported Mother And Child Turned Around

Washington DC District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan said that it was unacceptable that people claiming asylum had been removed while lawyers argued their case. Turn that plane around and bring those people back to the United States'.

In his written order, District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan scolded Attorney General Jeff Sessions and ordered the government to "return Carmen and her daughter to the United States".

DHS did not immediately return Fox News' request for comment, but an official with the department said earlier in a statement, obtained by The Hill, that it was working to comply with the court's order to "turn the plane around".

"This is pretty outrageous", he said according to the Post. They had sought asylum in the US after claiming they feared for their life in their homeland.

"I'm not happy about this at all", he continued. "This is not acceptable".

The lawsuit challenges Attorney General Jeff Sessions decision to exclude domestic and gang violence as reasons for immigrants to be granted asylum.

"Carmen and her daughter are right now somewhere in the air between Texas and El Salvador", ACLU lead attorney in the case Jennifer Chang Newell told NBC.




DC District Judge Emmet Sullivan then blocked the administration from deporting the two plaintiffs while they are fighting for their right to stay in the USA - reportedly excoriating the administration and threatening to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt.

"He should be [held in contempt]", Schmidt said, responding to Tur's description of a judge's threat to hold Sessions in contempt over the deportation.

The ACLU was in court today successfully seeking an emergency stay of removal for plaintiffs - many of whom are women fleeing extreme sexual and gang violence. Several co-workers at the factory where Carmen worked had been murdered, and her husband is also abusive, the paper added, citing records.

In June, the Trump administration determined that fleeing domestic violence and gang violence would no longer be accepted as a means for refuge in the United States.

The ACLU lawsuit, Grace v. Sessions, was filed Tuesday in federal court in Washington, D.C. The suit contends the new policies clash with protections created by Congress that establish an initial "credible fear" interview for asylum seekers.

Sessions has led efforts by the Trump Administration to crack down on illegal immigration, including the adoption of a zero tolerance policy that briefly included separating immigrant parents from their children while they were in US detention.

Sessions" unexpected announcement negated a comparatively more vague 2014 Board of Immigration Appeals ruling that married women in developing countries "who are unable to leave their relationship" can be considered a "particular social group' for asylum purposes.
