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.” -

Some in India counsel calm in strip-search controversy

The furor in India over the arrest and strip-search of an Indian diplomat in New York City continued to heat up Thursday, but some cautionary voices also were being heard. The website of The Hindu, an English-language national newspaper in India, on Thursday gave big play to Indian officials blasting the U.S. prosecutor’s explanation for the treatment of Devyani Khobragade, who was arrested Dec. 12 on visa fraud charges involving the immigration and treatment of a nanny. An editorial on the Hindu website, however, counseled caution. “Never known for taking on the U.S. on substantive policy issues, the government’s unusually…

Brazil gives $4.5b defense contract to Saab instead of Boeing over NSA row

Johan NilssonTT News AgencyReuters

US spying, including on President Rousseff, derailed deal according to a government source Brazil awarded a $4.5 billion contract to Saab AB on Wednesday to replace its aging fleet of fighter jets, a surprise coup for the Swedish company after news of U.S. spying on Brazilians helped derail Boeing’s chances for the deal. The contract, negotiated over the course of three presidencies, will supply Brazil’s air force with 36 new Gripen NG fighters by 2020. Aside from the cost of the jets themselves, the agreement is expected to generate billions of additional dollars in future supply and service contracts. Saab did not immediately comment on the…

LONDON — Intercepted voice mail messages made by Prince William on the phone of his then-girlfriend — now wife — Kate Middleton, the duchess of Cambridge, have been read out to a British jury as part of a high-profile phone-hacking trial. According to reporters at the trial, in one message Prince William refers to Middleton as “babykins.” In another, he jokes that he was almost shot — with blanks — while taking part in a military training exercise. “Hi baby. Um, sorry, I’ve got back in off my night navigation exercise,” the court heard William say in a message that…

Yanukovych tells West to keep out of Ukraine crisis


He also suggested that Ukraine could adopt parts of Russia’s recently founded Customs Union with other former Soviet republics. The opposition is furious after he accepted a Russian bailout, seen as a reward for rejecting EU integration. Russian President Vladimir Putin said he was defending the Russian economy. “We just want to defend our gates,” he told journalists in Moscow, days after Russia gave Ukraine a $15bn (£9.2bn; 10.9bn euros) bailout and gas discount. Ukraine, he said, was a fraternal state with close industrial ties to Russia. Protests have gripped much of Ukraine since President Yanukovych suspended the EU deal…

Poutine ne voit pas qui pourrait lui succéder


MARINA LAPENKOVA Agence France-Presse Moscou Le président russe, Vladimir Poutine, a refusé jeudi de parler d’un éventuel successeur, endossant le rôle d’un leader paternaliste y compris à l’égard du «peuple frère» ukrainien, tout en soulignant qu’il ne tolèrerait pas en Russie de manifestations comme à Kiev. S’exprimant avec une aisance visible lors de sa conférence de presse annuelle, M. Poutine, au Kremlin depuis l’an 2000 avec un intermède au poste de premier ministre entre 2008 et 2012, a voulu montrer qu’il tenait fermement en mains les rênes du pouvoir. Alors qu’un journaliste lui demandait s’il avait déjà en tête le nom…

L’ex-premier ministre et les deux fils de Moubarak acquittés


Un an et demi après la révolte populaire qui avait chassé du pouvoir M. Moubarak, ce général à la retraite avait perdu de peu face au candidat des Frères musulmans, l’islamiste Mohamed Morsi. Ce dernier, premier président élu démocratiquement en Égypte, a été destitué et arrêté début juillet par l’armée. Et le nouveau gouvernement dirigé de facto par les militaires mène, depuis août, une répression implacable et extrêmement meurtrière des manifestations de ses partisans islamistes réclamant son retour.
