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.” -

Ann Romney on comfort food and another campaign

Ann Romney

WASHINGTON — Nearly a year after her husband lost his bid for the White House, Ann Romney doesn’t rule out the idea there could be another campaign in her future. Might Mitt Romney run for office again? “I don’t know,” his wife of 44 years told USA TODAY’s “Capital Download,” adding, “I certainly don’t believe so,” but not shutting the door entirely. “It would have to be an extraordinary experience for us to have to do that again.” Then there’s son Josh, who has considered running for office in Utah. “I honestly could see Josh, at some point in his…

Après avoir réussi à décider cinq ministres de son Parti de la liberté (PDL) à démissionner du gouvernement samedi, celui-ci n’est pas parvenu à convaincre une majorité de ses troupes de refuser la…

World powers on ‘right track’ on Syria chemical arms: Putin

Russian President Putin speaks during VTB Capital Investment Forum "Russia Calling" in Moscow

– Global powers are “on the right track” with a plan to eliminate Syria’s chemical weapons and can avert military intervention in the conflict if they work together, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday. Agreement on the plan to eliminate Syria’s chemical weapons was reached after U.S. President Barack Obama asked Congress to approve air strikes to punish Syria’s government over an August 21 gas attack the United States says killed more than 1,400 people. “There is every reason to believe we are on the right track,” Putin told an investment conference. Putin said the chemical weapons plan, which…

Obamacare Could Save Some Of The Poorest Americans $1,429 Per Year: Study

GERMANY-US-DIPLOMACY-OBAMA —Obamacare will dramatically reduce the cost of health care for some of the poorest Americans, a new study finds. Out-of-pocket health care costs will drop from $1,463 to just $34 per year in 2016 for the approximately 11.5 million Americans who get insurance through the Affordable Care Act’s expansion of Medicaid, a study released Tuesday by the RAND Corporation found. President Obama’s health care reform law will also reduce the likelihood that this group will face catastrophic medical costs — defined as 10 percent of income — by 40 percent, according to the study. “The lowest income individuals benefit…

 – Turkey’s $4 billion order for a Chinese missile defense system is a breakthrough for Chinain its bid to become a supplier of advanced weapons, even though opposition from Washington and NATO threatens to derail the deal.
