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.” -

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.

Ahmad Chafiq, qui était jugé par contumace parce qu’il a fui aux Émirats arabes unis, a été acquitté par un tribunal criminel du Caire. Il était accusé de corruption dans une affaire concernant une cession de terrains aux deux fils d’Hosni Moubarak, Alaa et Gamal, actuellement en prison et jugés, comme leur père, dans d’autres procès.

M. Chafiq, qui a depuis fondé un parti politique, est désormais libre de revenir en Égypte, où des élections législatives et présidentielle doivent se tenir mi-2014.

À l’approche de ces échéances, «il va se concentrer sur son parti», a affirmé à l’AFP son porte-parole Ahmed Sarhan.

M. Chafiq était soupçonné d’avoir favorisé en 1995, quand il était un haut fonctionnaire de l’Aviation civile, la vente à un prix très avantageux de deux terrains aux fils Moubarak. Il a été acquitté pour les deux terrains litigieux.

Dans tous les cas, les deux fils de M. Moubarak resteront, eux, accusés de corruption notamment, dans d’autres procès en cours comme c’est le cas pour leur père. Hosni Moubarak, actuellement en résidence surveillée dans un hôpital militaire du Caire en raison de sa santé défaillante, est également jugé dans un autre procès pour «incitation au meurtre» de manifestants en 2011.

Le 3 juillet, invoquant des millions de manifestants qui avaient réclamé son départ trois jours plus tôt dans tout le pays, l’armée avait destitué et arrêté le président islamiste Mohamed Morsi. Il est aujourd’hui en prison, jugé pour «espionnage» et «incitation au meurtre» de manifestants du temps où il était au pouvoir.

Et, depuis le 14 août quand policiers et soldats ont tué plus de 700 manifestants pro-Morsi au Caire, le nouveau gouvernement, dirigé de facto par les militaires, mène une répression sanglante des manifestations islamistes quasi-quotidiennes.

Plus d’un millier de manifestants ont été tués depuis quatre mois et des milliers de Frères musulmans – la confrérie de M. Morsi qui avait largement remporté les législatives de fin 2011 – ont été arrêtés, dont la quasi-totalité de leurs leaders.

L’armée a imposé dès le 3 juillet au gouvernement intérimaire qu’elle venait de mettre en place d’organiser des élections législatives et présidentielles au premier semestre 2014.

Les spéculations se multiplient autour d’une possible candidature du véritable homme fort du pays : le chef de l’armée, le général Abdel Fattah al-Sissi, également vice-premier ministre et ministre de la Défense, poste qui lui avait été attribué par M. Morsi, dont il a lui-même annoncé la destitution.

Le général Sissi ne s’est pas prononcé sur son éventuelle candidature et M. Chafiq, lui-même un ancien militaire, a affirmé lors d’une interview qu’il ne se présenterait que si le général Sissi ne concourait pas pour la magistrature suprême.
