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.” -

Brazil ex-President Joao Goulart to be exhumed


The remains of a former president of Brazil, Joao Goulart, will be exhumed on Wednesday to establish whether he died of natural causes or was poisoned. Mr Goulart, widely known as Jango, died in 1976 in exile in Argentina. His cause of death was deemed to have been a heart attack. But a former Uruguayan intelligence officer has said Mr Goulart was poisoned by agents working for the region’s military governments. He governed from 1961 to 1964. Forensic scientists commenced work on Wednesday morning, digging a hole in the grave to create an escape for gases which had formed inside…

Brazil 2014: Jordan vs Uruguay,Mexico vs New Zealand

sport* updated @2:05 Comments: FULL TIME: It may only be half-time in this play-off, but Uruguay can surely start their preparations for Brazil. The two-time FIFA World Cup winners were full value for their win and their quality shone through. A wonderful Edinson CAVANI (URU) free kick topped off an efficient performance by La Celeste. Jordan pressed well, and had a golden opportunity to get back into the match at 2-0, but the tie is surely beyond Hossam Hassan’s men. The return leg is in Montevideo next week, but it will surely be a formality as Uruguay look to return…

Giuseppe Aresu, AP

The soul legend has lived in Switzerland for nearly 20 years. It looks like soul legend Tina Turner is taking a big step away from the good old U.S. of A. Turner recently filed paperwork with the U.S. Embassy in Bern, Switzerland, to relinquish her American citizenship, The Washington Post reports, citing an official “activity report” from the embassy. The Post says Turner declared that she has few connections to the country of her birth other than family and she “has no plans to reside in the United States in the future.” Turner, 73, has lived in Switzerland for almost 20 years. She became a…

Obama hits low mark in another poll

Obama Another poll, another low water mark for President Obama. A new Quinnipiac University survey says American voters disapprove of Obama’s performance by 54% to 39%, the worst marks of his presidency. As with similar polls in recent days, most of Obama’s problems can be traced to criticism of the new health care plan, including website problems and cancellation notices on existing policies. Quinnipiac noted that Obama had a 45% approval rating at the start of October, the month the health care plan rollout began. “President Obama’s misstatement, ‘if you like your health plan, you can keep it,’ left a bad taste…
