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.” -

Putin says EU should not criticize Russia over Ukraine

(Reuters) – Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday dismissed European Union criticism over Ukraine’s decision to suspend plans for a trade pact with the EU and denied Moscow had reached a deal to supply cheaper gas to Kiev. Putin rejected suggestions from Brussels that Russia had pressured Ukraine to pull out of signing the deal at an EU summit this week. He said he had been concerned Russia’s market would have been flooded with EU goods as a result. “We are not ready to throw open our gates to European goods like that,” Putin said, speaking at a joint news conference after…

Japan approves new state secrecy bill to combat leaks


(BBC)–The lower house of the Japanese parliament has approved a state secrecy bill that imposes stiffer penalties on civil servants who leak secrets and journalists who try to obtain them. The move had been criticised by reporters and freedom of speech campaigners as a heavy-handed effort to suppress press freedom. But the government says the move is needed for national security reasons. The bill now goes to the upper house, where it is also likely to be passed. Critics say the new law could allow the government to withhold more information and ultimately undermine Japan’s democracy. Security information The bill…

U.S. sends B-52 over China-claimed waters

Jerome Favre, epa

NAHA, OKINAWA, Japan — An American carrier battle group and a flotilla of Japanese warships will arrive Wednesday near a vast stretch of ocean claimed by China in what is shaping up as a test of how Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and the USA will stand up to the challenge. The joint U.S.-Japan exercises in the sea are a direct challenge to China’s claim. On Tuesday, the U.S. military said two Air Force B-52 bombers flew over the sea without notifying Beijing despite China’s demand that it be told if anyone plans to fly military aircraft over its self-claimed “air…

Manifestation du 29 novembre : Moise Jean Charles decide de faire cavalier seul

La manifestation des organisations populaires proches de Fanmi Lavalas initialement prévue pour se terminer  ce vendredi devant l’ambassade des Etats-Unis à Tabarre, finira de préférence avec un sit-in  à la ruelle Vaillant au centre de la capitale (Port-au-Prince).   C’est à la ruelle Vaillant que des individus armés ont noyé dans le sang, le 29 novembre 1987, ce qui promettait d’être les premières élections libres honnêtes et démocratiques après le départ  de Jean-Claude Duvalier Duvalier le 7 février 1986. L’organisation politique Fanmi Lalavas a jugé plus opportun de rendre hommage et de réclamer justice pour les victimes, 26 ans après…

Ukraine : les pro-européens toujours mobilisés

Le froid insistant n’empêchait pas, mardi 26 novembre, les opposants ukrainiens pro-européens de rester mobilisés, pour la troisième journée consécutive. “Pour le rapprochement avec l’Europe !” lisait-on sur une bannière déployée sur la place de l’Europe dans le centre de Kiev, choisie par quelque deux cents opposants pour installer leur camp de tentes après la volte-face la semaine dernière du pouvoir, qui a suspendu les préparatifs d’un accord d’association avec l’Union européenne. Les opposants, qui attendent vers 18 heures une manifestation massive, ont appelé les militants par les réseaux sociaux à apporter des vêtements chauds sur la place. Non loin de…
