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.” -

Tension à Ferguson, quadrillée par 2200 militaires

AFP

JENNIE MATTHEW Agence France-Presse Ferguson Le président américain a condamné les violences à Ferguson, quadrillée mardi soir par trois fois plus de militaires que la veille pour éviter de nouvelles émeutes, après la décision d’un jury populaire de ne pas poursuivre un policier blanc responsable de la mort d’un jeune Noir. «Brûler des bâtiments, mettre le feu à des voitures, détruire des biens, mettre des gens en danger: il n’y a aucune excuse pour cela, ce sont des actes criminels», a déclaré Barack Obama lors d’un discours à Chicago. «Il existe des moyens constructifs d’exprimer ses frustrations», a poursuivi le…

Wilson: Brown looked like ‘demon’

The Hill

In testimony to a grand jury, police office Darren Wilson said Michael Brown looked like a “demon” in the moments before Wilson shot and killed him. Wilson said grabbing the 18-year-old Brown, who reportedly weighed nearly 300 pounds, was like “a 5-year-old holding onto Hulk Hogan,” and that his fear for his own safety led to the shooting. The release of the grand jury transcripts provides the first full account of Wilson’s version of events available to the public. It largely lines up with the narrative presented by prosecutor Robert McCulloch at a press conference announcing the grand jury’s decision….

Merkel hits diplomatic dead-end with Putin

(Reuters) – After nine months of non-stop German diplomacy to defuse the crisis in Ukraine, Chancellor Angela Merkel decided in mid-November that a change of tack was needed. Ahead of a summit of G20 leaders in Australia, Merkel resolved to confront Vladimir Putin alone, without the usual pack of interpreters and aides. Instead of challenging him on what she saw as a string of broken promises, she would ask the Russian president to spell out exactly what he wanted in Ukraine and other former Soviet satellites the Kremlin had started bombarding with propaganda. On Nov. 15 at 10 p.m., a world away from the…

Agence France-Presse TRIPOLI L’idéologie extrême du groupe armé État islamique (EI) attire des sympathisants dans les milieux radicaux en Libye, où la ville de Derna (est), transformée en «émirat islamique», est devenue le fief des partisans de l’EI, selon des experts. Certains observateurs occidentaux considèrent déjà cette ville de 150 000 habitants, place forte historique des islamistes radicaux dans l’Est libyen, comme la troisième franchise d’EI en Afrique du Nord, après Jund al-Khilafa, en Algérie, et Ansar Bayt al-Maqdiss en Égypte. Le dirigeant de l’EI, Abou Bakr al-Baghdadi a récemment vanté dans un enregistrement audio l’expansion du «califat» annonçant avoir accepté…

Nuit d’émeutes à Ferguson

JENNIE MATTHEW Agence France-Presse FERGUSON Immeubles incendiés, policiers pris pour cibles, commerces pillés : la ville de Ferguson a connu une nuit d’émeutes et de violences après l’annonce lundi soir qu’aucune poursuite ne serait intentée à l’encontre d’un policier blanc ayant tué en août un jeune Noir désarmé. Dès l’annonce du verdict prononcé par le grand jury – un jury populaire -, les violences ont éclaté dans la petite ville du Missouri tandis que, de Seattle à New York en passant par Chicago et Los Angeles, des milliers d’Américains descendaient dans les rues pour dénoncer «le racisme qui tue». > Réagissez…
