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.” -

Rebondissement dans l’affaire Jean Claude Duvalier! La cour d’appel a rendu sa décision et casse celle prononcé en première instance par le juge Jean Carvès qui avait envoyé M. Duvalier devant le tribunal correctionnel. Selon les conclusions du verdict de la Cour d’appel, il  y a lieu de poursuivre Jean Claude Duvalier vu que les crimes qui ont été commis sous son régime, sont des crimes contre l’humanité, lesquels sont frappés d’imprescriptibilité. Déjà, son avocat, Me Fritzo Canton dénonce cette décision et estime que les juges ne comprennent pas les textes de loi, a appris HPN. Cependant, l’un des avocats…

QuestCinq.com WASHINGTON-Le dalaï-lama, en visite à Washington, a salué jeudi le virage de la Chine vers l’économie de marché et, face à un parterre de fervents partisans du marché, souhaité que le capitalisme n’oublie pas la composante humaine. Au cours d’un séminaire de deux jours à l’American Enterprise Institute, un centre de réflexion conservateur, le leader spirituel tibétain en exil a mis en avant le rôle central du dirigeant Deng Xiaoping dans l’introduction du capitalisme en Chine dans les années 80, preuve selon lui que «l’économie centralisée, peu importe les efforts entrepris, est vouée à l’échec». «Deng Xiaoping était un…

Leo Ramirez, archives AFP

Caracas-L’opposant vénézuélien Leopoldo Lopez fera finalement face à des accusations criminelles pour avoir organisé la manifestation qui a donné lieu à une semaine de troubles à travers le pays.

Il devra notamment répondre d’accusations d’incendie criminel et d’incitation criminelle, en lien avec une importante manifestation organisée le 12 février. Les procureurs ont toutefois décidé d’abandonner les accusations les plus graves, à savoir celles de meurtre…

‘Don’t be doormat’ Russia warns cash-starved Kiev

– Russia warned Ukraine’s president not to let opponents walk over him “like a doormat”, its strongest signal yet on Thursday that Moscow wants order on the streets before handing over more cash to stave off bankruptcy. In an increasingly bitter struggle for influence in Ukraine between Russia and the West, Moscow upped the ante by directly linking the delivery of $2 billion in loans to the end of protests, which Moscow portrays as led by dangerous extremists. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Russia could deal only with “legitimate and effective authorities – a leadership which people aren’t wiping their feet on like a doormat”….
