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.” -

Le sénateur Wencesclass Lambert s’oppose aux pressions pour faire partir le président Martelly

Lambert

Le sénateur Wencesclass Lambert (sud-est), connu pour sa position affirmée en faveur du président Michel Martelly, a appelé jeudi au respect du mandat du chef de l’État, élu en 2011 pour 5 ans.

Le parlementaire se montre très furieux vis-à-vis de ceux qui appellent au départ du président Michel Martelly accusé de ” graves dérives  anti-démocratiques”.

M. Lambert a  exprimé sa solidarité avec le chef de l’Etat, objet de vives contestations ces dernières semaines, paticulièrement  au  cours de manifestions de milliers de personnes à Port-au-Prnce et en province pour réclamer son départ.

Le 18 novembre dernier, des dizaines de milliers de personnes  ont ainsi gagné les rues dans la capitale  pour le presser de se demetre, alors que certains de ses partisans qui avaient convoqué une manifestation, n’avaient pas réussi à faire recette. D’autres se sont plutôt attaqués aux manifestants anti-gouvernementaux à coups de pierres et d’armes, faisant des blessés dont certains par balles.

“Michel Martelly a un mandat sacré que lui a conféré le peuple et il est temps qu’on apprenne à respecter la durée du mandat des chefs d’État, dit M. Lambert dont le frère, l’ancien sénateur Joseph Lambert, avait récemment déclaré que tant qu’il sera aux côtés du président comme conseiller politique, rien ne peut lui arriver.

Michel Martelly est cependant  constamment accusé ces derniers jours  d’avoir  été dans un passé  récent en première ligne de manifestations pour demander le départ d’un chef d’État qui, comme lui aujourd’hui, avait accédé à la première magistrature, à travers des élections.

Wencesclass Lambert a par ailleurs vanté ce qu’il appelle les grandes réalisations de M. Martelly et estime que le chef de l’État est en train de redresser la situation du pays qui avait été ruiné par la mauvaise gouvernance.

Il accuse particulièrement l’organisation de l’ancien président Jean Bertrand Aristide, Fanmi Lavalas, dont les militants jouent un rôle de premier plan dans la grande mobilisation pour le respect des principes démocratiques, d’avoir fait beaucoup de mal au pays.

Selon lui, la situation difficile dans laquelle le pays se trouve aujourd’hui, fait partie des séquelles de la gouvernance Lavalas.

Pour sa part, le sénateur Moïse Jean-Charles, l’un des principaux opposants à Michel Martelly, a fait savoir que le pays n’est jamais descendu aussi bas. Il a rappelé que M. Martelly n’avait pu obtenir  que  700 mille voix lors des élections de 2010/2011, selon les chiffres fournis par le CEP, alors que, a-t-il dit, plus d’un million de personnes ont récemment investi les rues pour lui demander de partir.
