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.” -

Ukraine, feeling winter chill, pays $378 million for Russian gas

– With freezing temperatures gripping Kiev, Ukraine’s state energy firm Naftogaz said on Friday it had transferred $378 million to Russia’s Gazprom to buy Russian gas for December, paving the way for the first shipments since Moscow cut supplies in June. Flows to Ukraine from Russia were severed in a dispute over prices and debts. In line with a deal signed by Naftogaz and Gazprom in October, they should resume within 48 hours from when the Russian firm receives the transfer. Cash-strapped Kiev had delayed buying new supplies, but increasingly cold weather has forced it to draw down on severely depleted reserves. Naftogaz did…

La CPI abandonne les poursuites contre le président kényan


La procureure de la Cour pénale internationale (CPI) a annoncé vendredi l’abandon des charges contre le président du Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta, qui était accusé de crimes contre l’humanité à la suite des violences postélectorales de 2007-2008. «L’accusation retire les charges contre M. Kenyatta», a déclaré la procureure, Fatou Bensouda, dans un document officiel, soulignant ne pas avoir assez de preuves «pour prouver, au-delà de tout doute raisonnable, la responsabilité criminelle présumée de M. Kenyatta». Ce retrait des charges n’exclut pas «la possibilité de retenir de nouvelles charges contre M. Kenyatta», a-t-elle cependant précisé. Le président kényan, âgé de 53 ans, était soupçonné de…

Deportations drop to new low for Obama

Fewer immigrants were deported in the last year than at any other time in President Obama’s tenure, according to a Friday report. Deportations of individuals caught crossing the border were down 9 percent, according to preliminary numbers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) obtained by The Los Angeles Times. The government also removed fewer immigrants who were already living in the U.S. Those deportations — which often take place when an individual comes into contact with the criminal justice system — dropped 23 percent for the year ending September 30. Border crossings were up 15 percent during that period, according…
