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.” -

Trump denies US opposition to WHO breastfeeding resolution

BBC

US President Donald Trump has defended US efforts to reportedly undermine a World Health Organization (WHO) measure in support of breastfeeding. A New York Times report claimed US officials fought against language that all governments should “protect, promote and support breastfeeding”. The report alleges that the US threatened countries over the resolution, which eventually passed. A government spokesperson called the reports “patently false” on Monday. On Twitter, Mr Trump “called out” the Times and said the “US strongly supports breastfeeding”.

Woman kept alive for six days with no lungs

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-38781484 A woman was kept alive with no lungs for six days while she waited for a transplant in April last year.

Melissa Benoit, who lives in Canada, had developed life-threatening complications as a result of her cystic fibrosis. She said: “In my mid-20s I started developing lung infections, and I acquired influenza with this bout which put me in respiratory distress.” Melissa was given hours to live, until doctors undertook the pioneering surgery which she…

Cruz’s Bronx school visit canceled after student walkout threat

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz‘s planned visit to a school in the Bronx was canceled after students threatened a walkout if the Texas senator came, the New York Daily News reported.

Ted Cruz goes against everything our school stands for.” The letter explained that a…

Hawking: Humans at risk of lethal ‘own goal’

BBC

Humanity is at risk from a series of dangers of our own making, according to Prof Stephen Hawking. Nuclear war, global warming and genetically-engineered viruses are among the scenarios he singles out. And he says that further progress in science and technology will create “new ways things can go wrong”. Prof Hawking is giving this year’s BBC Reith Lectures, which explore research into black holes, and his warning came in answer to audience questions. He says that assuming humanity eventually establishes colonies on other worlds, it will be able to survive. “Although the chance of a disaster to planet Earth…

George Washington slave book pulled after criticism

AP

A children’s picture book about George Washington and his slaves has been pulled by publishers Scholastic. A Birthday Cake for George Washington tells the story of Washington’s slave Hercules, a cook, and his daughter. It had been criticised for its images of smiling slaves, and described as being “highly problematic”. Scholastic said in a statement that without more historical context, the book “may give a false impression of the reality of the lives of slaves”. The book, telling the story of Hercules and Delia making a cake together, had been released on 5 January. It was met with a barrage of one-star…

Harvard ‘black tape’ vandalism brings law school’s controversial past to fore

The Guardian

Derecka Purnell was one of the first Harvard law students to see the black tape placed over about six portraits of Harvard Law School’s tenured black facultyWednesday morning. “I was surprised to see it …” Purnell said, before reconsidering: “Actually, I wasn’t surprised at all.” The incident comes at a moment when, nationwide, college students are demanding action against the entrenched white supremacy and racism they say still pervades campus life. Even at elite liberal universities such as Harvard – places where some might believe that racist symbols and behavior are a relic of the past – these discussions and protests persist. And…
