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.” -

Repealing health care law would mean higher costs

WASHINGTON — Republicans may not agree with President Obama’s State of the Union call to drop the idea of repealing the Affordable Care Act, but health experts say the law has taken such hold that it may be impossible to get rid of it. The consequences of repeal, health care officials and industry analysts say, go beyond the fact that 9 million people would suddenly lose their insurance or that anyone with a pre-existing condition would either lose insurance or pay much higher premiums. All consumers would take a huge financial hit, because health care costs would continue to rise,…

Par le dialogue, l’Eglise tente d’éviter une «explosion»

Hector Retamal, AFP L’église catholique haïtienne parraine depuis une semaine un dialogue entre parlementaires et membres du gouvernement pour tenter d’éviter une «explosion» politique du pays, selon le mot du premier cardinal haïtien de l’histoire. «Plus on prend de temps à ne pas poser les problèmes entre les différents protagonistes, plus on court le risque d’une explosion dans le pays», a déclaré Mgr Chibly Langlois, qui conduit les discussions, lors d’un entretien accordé à l’AFP. Le dialogue inter-haïtien doit déboucher sur un accord censé notamment permettre d’organiser des élections législatives, municipales et locales, des scrutins qui auraient dû être organisés il y…

Thaïlande: violente bataille de rue à la veille des élections

Nir Elias, Reuters Bangkok-Des tirs nourris et des explosions ont eu lieu samedi à Bangkok lors de heurts entre manifestants pro et antigouvernement, à la veille de législatives à haut risque qui n’ont que peu de chances d’apaiser trois mois de crise politique meurtrière. Au moins six personnes, selon les secours, ont été blessées lors de ces affrontements entre des partisans du gouvernement et des manifestants qui bloquaient un bâtiment où se trouvaient des urnes destinées aux élections de dimanche que les opposants au gouvernement ont promis d’empêcher. Un journaliste de l’AFP a vu un homme le visage caché sous un passe-montagne…

Obama’s executive actions: the power of taking small steps

(Reuters) – President Barack Obama’s sixth year in office is starting out as a testament to the power of taking small steps. Frustrated by congressional gridlock, he has turned to the “pen and the phone” to provoke a “year of action” with a flurry of executive orders, directives, meetings and reviews to get his presidency back on track after the difficulties he encountered last year. None of the steps he is taking are going to change the world and indeed, they may be best-remembered collectively as a declaration of Obama’s own relevance, an attempt to go over the heads of his Republican…
