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.” -

India trims perks for U.S. staff in dispute over envoy’s New York arrest

Arshack, lawyer of Khobragade, speaks to Reuters TV in front of the Indian Consulate building in New York

– India took retaliatory measures against the United States on Wednesday in a dispute over an Indian diplomat who complained of being stripped and forced to undergo “cavity searches” while in U.S. detention. The measures included a revision of work conditions of Indians employed at U.S. consulates and a freeze on the import of duty-free alcohol. Devyani Khobragade, a deputy consul general at the Indian Consulate in New York, was arrested on December 12 on charges of visa fraud and underpaying her housekeeper, an Indian national. She was released on a $250,000 bail. India has responded furiously to what it…

Obamacare enrollment by Latinos hurt by immigration law concerns

Acosta, patient care coordinator at AltaMed, speaks to a man during a community outreach on Obamacare in Los Angeles

(Reuters) – Concerns among Hispanics that signing up for medical insurance under President Barack Obama’s healthcare law may draw the scrutiny of immigration authorities has hurt enrollment, according to advocates of the policy. Convincing Latinos to enroll could be crucial to the law’s success, and supporters of Obama’s signature domestic policy are aiming their campaign at the 10.2 million Latinos eligible for the new insurance plans or the expansion of the Medicaid program for the poor. As a group, Latinos are younger than the overall population in the United States and signing them up in large numbers under the Patient Protection and…

Entre Hollande et Merkel, «une différence d’approche et de méthode»

Angela Merkel, Francois Hollande

INTERVIEW – Angela Merkel réélue chancelière, François Hollande est contraint de faire fonctionner avec elle le couple franco-allemand pendant trois nouvelles années. Une affaire compliquée selon Florence Autret, journaliste à Bruxelles et biographe* d’Angela Merkel. LE FIGARO – Les relations entre Angela Merkel etFrançois Hollande se sont-elles réchauffées depuis les débuts assez froids entre les deux dirigeants? Florence AUTRET – Je ne pense pas qu’ils aient des relations cordiales.

Beyonce’s Album Shatters Records With 828,773-Sale Weekend

Beyonce "The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour" - Los Angeles

-Beyonce took a big risk in dropping her self-titled album on iTunes late last week without any pre-release promotion, and it’s now abundantly clear that the bold move paid off. The singer’s camp tells The Huffington Post that “Beyoncé” sold 828,773 copies over the weekend, a massive take made even more impressive by the fact that the album was an iTunes exclusive for the duration of that period. The album was the fastest-selling to ever hit iTunes and sold 617,213 copies domestically. Featuring collaborations from Drake, Frank Ocean and Beyoncé’s husband and daughter Jay Z and Blue Ivy, the LP is…

Russia deal saved Ukraine from bankruptcy – PM Azarov


Ukraine’s decision to suspend a deal on closer EU ties and sign a Russian aid agreement instead has helped avoid bankruptcy, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov has told ministers in Kiev. The government’s surprise U-turn on an EU association agreement last month has sparked weeks of mass demonstrations. But Mr Azarov said the package from Russia would provide stability. Russia has agreed to buy $15bn (£9.2bn, 11bn euros) of government bonds and slash the price of gas. Ukraine’s opposition has demanded to know what Ukraine offered Russia in return. Thousands of pro-EU protesters have been holding rallies in Kiev – occupying…
