A government lawyer acknowledged Monday that the Trump administration will miss its first court-imposed deadline to reunite about 100 immigrant children under age 5 with their parents. Department of Justice attorney Sarah Fabian said during a court hearing that federal authorities reunited two families and expect to reunite an additional 59 by Tuesday’s deadline. She said the other cases are more complicated, including parents who have been deported or are in prison facing criminal charges, and would require more time to complete reunions. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw, who ordered the administration to reunite families separated as part of President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy, said he will hold another hearing Tuesday morning to get an update on the remaining cases. He said he was encouraged to see “real progress” in the complicated reunification process after a busy weekend when officials from multiple federal agencies tried to sync up parents and children who are spread across the country.

I do recognize that there are some groups of parents who are going to fall into a category where it’s impossible to reunite by tomorrow,” he said. “I am very encouraged by the progress. I’m optimistic.” Lee Gelernt, an American Civil Liberties Union attorney who leads a lawsuit against the federal government, sounded more skeptical. When asked by the judge if he believed the government was in full compliance of the court order, Gelernt said there was much more work to be done. “Let me put it this way: I think the government in the last 48 hours has taken significant steps,” he said. “We just don’t know how much effort the government has made to find released parents. I don’t think there’s been full compliance.” U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw, based in San Diego. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw, based in San Diego. (Photo: U.S. District Court) The difficulty in reuniting the first 100 children shows the challenge that lies ahead as the Trump administration braces for another deadline in two weeks to reunite nearly 3,000 older children – up to age 17 – with their parents. The process is complicated because of all the different situations that emerged over the weekend. The government initially identified 102 children under age 5 who needed to be reunited but removed three children from that list because investigations into their cases revealed that those children came with adults who were not their parents, Fabian said. Twelve parents were found to be in federal and state custody on criminal charges, making a reunification impossible since the government can’t transfer minors to state and local prisons to protect the well-being of the child. Nine parents were deported, and the government established contact with only four of them, Fabian said. Four children had been scheduled to be released from government custody to relatives who weren’t their parents, leading the government to question whether to allow that process to be completed or to redirect the child back to a parent. Gelernt said he understood many of the hurdles but urged the judge to force the government to scrap its time-consuming investigation into every single case and start a 48-hour clock to reunify families that remain separated by Tuesday. Sabraw said he would decide that during Tuesday’s hearing. Fabian said one of the silver linings of the busy weekend is that her office worked closely with its challengers at the ACLU to share information on each child’s case, to ensure that representatives from immigration advocacy groups and volunteer organizations could be present during each reunification. Gelernt said they’re doing that to help the parents, who are often released from custody with no money and nowhere to go. Fabian said that coordination has led to a more formalized process between government agencies and with the immigrants’ lawyers that should make reunifications go more smoothly in the coming weeks. “I think this process over the weekend helped us see what information, and in what form, is the most useful to share,” she said. “I’d like to make that as efficient a process as possible.” -

Sim te yon sitwayen Ameriken, mwen tap vote Obama pou rezon sa yo!


Zanmi m yo,

Men pozisyon pesonel mwen sou eleksyon Amerikenn yo. Le m konsidere lwa sou Sante a ak enpotans li genyen sou lavi moun. Si m te yon sitwayen Ameriken mwen tap vote pou Prezidan Barak Obama.

 Le m konprann kijan pwoblem imigrasyon an konpleks e li seten Repibliken pap ede milyon ki san papye yo paske yo pat ede menm ansyen Prezidan George W. Bush ladan l. Mwen tap vote pou Prezidan Obama.

Se tout moun ki pou mete ansanm pou ekonomi an repati tout bon, si n kite tout gwo Konpayi fe bankwopsi tout malere yo tap pedi travay ak benefis yo. Nou konnen Obama pat kite sa rive. Pou sa mwen tap vote pou Obama.

Le m konnen koman kolej koute che isit, pou amoti pwa a, administrasyon Obama a bay plis ed pou peye kolej epi redwi entere sou lonn kolej yo. Pou sa mwen tap vote pou Obama.

Le m sonje kantite solda ki tap mouri chak jou nan peyi Irak. Obama mennen solda yo retounen epi kite Irakyen pou dirije tet yo…Pou sa mwen tap vote Obama.

Le m gade konbyen fwa Repiblen yo di non, pou tout bagay nan Congres a, mwen panse yo pap fe anyen pou soulaje moun ki nan klas mweyenn nan. Pou sa mwen kwe Obama pi konprann sa moun ki nan nivo sa a ap pran, mwen tap vote pou Obama.

Geynen kote mwen pa dako ak li men yo minim konpare ak konbyen fwa mwen pa dako ak Gov. Romney.

Mwen kwe si Obama eli pou yonn lot manda lap fe plis efo pou l travay ak yo paske l pap bezwen yon lot manda.

Mwen pa kwe Romney konprann doule moun ki nan nesesite pou peye Kolej, pa ekzanp le l di pou etidyan mande paran yo prete lajan pou peye kolej.

Mwen envite w al vote, si w santi, sa m di yo touché w vote pou mwen tou paske mwen paka!

My friends,

Here is my personal opinion on the presidential election. When I consider the importance of the Health care Law passed by Congress under Obama’s watch, and its importance on our lives, if I were an American citizen I would vote for President Obama.

When I know the complexity of the immigration issue in America, the GOP did not even want to help former President Bush solved that problem. I would vote for President Obama.

When it comes to the economic recovery, everyone has a role to play. We could not let all the big companies file for bankruptcy as Gov. Romney had suggested. If President Obama had let that happened, we know the companies would get more profits by laying off most or all of their employees and the employees would lose all of their benefits. For his leadership in saving the auto industry, I would vote for President Obama.

When I know how expensive College is these days, to help,  the Obama’s administration decided to lower student’s interest and gave more grant to those who are qualified. If I were able to vote, I would vote for Obama. On that issue, Gov. Romney had suggested students should borrow money from their parents!

When I remember the Iraq war and the number of soldiers killed every day. If I were an American, I would vote for President Obama who brought the troops home safely and let Iraqis with their country.

When I saw how many times the GOP Congress voted NO in Congress, I think they do not understand the middle class calamities but special interests. If I were an American, I would vote for Obama who seems to have a better understanding of the middle class.

I think that President Obama could put politic aside to work with the GOP if he got a second term…

There are times, I disagree with this administration. But those disagreements are small compare to my disagreements with the GOP AND Gov. Romney’s agenda. For instance, ask illegal immigrants to self deport while they have children born here…or deport their children who came here as infant or toddlers without committing any crimes of their own.

I invite/encourage you to vote. If you feel what I said touch you, please vote for me too, since I cannot!
