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.” -

Je suis comme tout citoyen dans la cité, un homme politique. L’animal politique décrit par Aristote. Je parle des prix du sucre, de l’huile, du carburant et du pain, je fais de la politique.

What’s the capital of Canada? Watch Harvard students struggle to answer

QuestCinq.com What’s the capital of Canada? Don’t know? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Students at Harvard University were asked the same question on camera by the Harvard Crimson, the Ivy League school’s newspaper. Their answers ranged from “I don’t know,” “I have no idea” and “Oh my God, it’s really bad I don’t know” to “Alberta — no, that’s not right,” “probably Vancouver or something,” “is it Toronto?” and “I’m sorry Canada.” The correct answer is Ottawa, Canada’s fourth largest city and center of government as selected by Queen Victoria in 1857. Just don’t ask Harvard kids to tell you that.   By Dylan…

Venezuelan president granted power to rule by decree

Maduro

Venezuela’s National Assembly has granted President Nicolas Maduro wide-ranging special powers to rule by decree for one year, a move that he has said is necessary to fully tackle the country’s spiraling inflation. The decree will essentially allow the president to create laws without parliamentary approval. The socialist president says he needs greater personal power to stamp out opponents who are waging “economic warfare against his government” as the country struggles with soaring inflation and shortages of basic goods. Tuesday’s vote over the Enabling Law is the latest move by the elected Venezuelan leader, a protégé of the late President Hugo…

Inflation falls as gas prices plummet

Julio Cortez, AP

The price of goods and services consumers buy fell 0.1% in October, driven by a 2.9% drop in the cost of gasoline, as the Labor Department said prices overall are continuing the slowest year-over-year rise since 2009. The consumer price index report also said that the price of medical care was unchanged, Medical cost containment in recent years has been a key factor in bringing down overall price hikes, and letting policy makers use aggressive monetary policy to fight the after-effects of the recession and housing bust without sparking inflation. The so-called core inflation rate, excluding food and energy prices,…
