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.” -

Republican Boehner pushes long-term spending to avoid shutdown fight

Speaker of the House Boehner listens as U.S. President Obama talks as he hosts a luncheon for bi-partisan Congressional leaders in the Old Family Dining Room at the White House in Washington

(Reuters) – U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner urged fellow Republicans on Tuesday to pass a spending bill that funds most of the federal government through Sept. 30, 2015, avoiding a shutdown fight over President Barack Obama’simmigration action. At a closed meeting of House Republicans to plot strategy on how to handle a must-pass government spending bill, Boehner proposed including a short-term extension for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the agency that will implement Obama’s immigration order, Republicans said. That would allow Republicans to revisit efforts to block Obama’s immigration action by placing spending restrictions on DHS activities early…

Les députés français disent oui à l’État palestinien


CÉCILE FEUILLATRE Agence France-Presse PARIS Les députés français ont adopté mardi à une large majorité une résolution sur la reconnaissance de l’État palestinien, un texte non contraignant, mais à forte portée symbolique, qui a suscité le courroux d’Israël et la satisfaction des Palestiniens. L’Assemblée nationale française a adopté par 339 voix contre 151 une résolution invitant le gouvernement à reconnaître officiellement l’État palestinien, «en vue d’obtenir un règlement définitif du conflit». Quelque 68 députés n’ont pas pris part au vote de ce texte, initié par la majorité socialiste, pour qui cette démarche est «un signal de paix» visant à «surmonter…

Hong Kong: les initiateurs d’Occupy appellent à évacuer la rue


LAURA MANNERING Agence France-Presse HONG KONG Les trois initiateurs de la campagne d’occupation à Hong Kong ont appelé mardi les manifestants à évacuer la rue alors que les leaders étudiants, devenus le fer de lance du mouvement prodémocratie, ont entamé une grève de la faim pour faire avancer leur cause. Après plus de deux mois d’occupation de plusieurs quartiers de l’ancienne colonie britannique passée sous tutelle chinoise, le mouvement n’a obtenu aucun résultat concret. Il est partagé entre ceux qui veulent radicaliser l’action et ceux qui veulent passer à autre chose. Benny Tai, Chan Kin-man et Chu Yiu-ming, fondateurs d’Occupy…

Les Evêques haïtiens

Dans un message à l’occasion de la Noël, les Evêques haïtiens réunis en conclave ont appelé les acteurs politiques à arrêter le marronnage, la duplicité et la démagogie après avoir fait le constat d’une nette dégradation de situation dans le pays. Avec la grande majorité, nous constatons : a. La non-organisation d’élections au temps fixé et l’inflexibilité des uns et des autres ne permettant pas de les tenir jusqu’à maintenant! b. La cherté du prix des produits de première nécessité et son corollaire, l’insécurité alimentaire! c. La dégradation accélérée de l’environnement due à la déforestation progressive et à l’érosion massive!…
