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.” -

Court backs Texas affirmative action

AFP

A federal appeals court panel ruled that it could use so-called affirmative action as a way of promoting diversity. Last year, the US Supreme Court sent the issue back to lower courts for further review. In a 2-1 ruling, the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the case of a white student denied a place at the Austin, Texas, university in 2008. Abigail Fisher said the policy of considering her race violated her civil and constitutional rights. But the judges found that barring the university from using race would negatively affect the diversity of the campus, which would be…

White House student loan proposal won’t help many

The White House rolled out the proverbial red carpet last week to announce the administration’s latest proposals to make college more affordable for students. But it turns out the latest plan, which will expand a version of income-based repayment to more borrowers with federal student loans, among a few other components, probably won’t do much to make college more affordable, nor will many students likely notice a difference. The specifics of the plan aren’t yet clear. From what we do know, though, the White House plans to offer a version of the income-based repayment plan for student loans it introduced…

QuestCinq.com TALLAHASSEE —As students in the Senate gallery wiped tears from their eyes and the voice of the bill’s sponsor cracked, the Senate approved a measure Thursday that would grant in-state tuition to immigrant students brought to the U.S. illegally as children.

New York: l’école pour tous à partir de 4 ans

MARIANO ANDRADENew York-C’était une promesse électorale du nouveau maire de New York Bill de Blasio et elle va devenir réalité : l’école maternelle publique accueillera tous les enfants de la ville à partir de 4 ans dès la rentrée prochaine. Mais M. de Blasio, un démocrate résolument marqué à gauche, a dû ranger dans ses cartons un autre de ses engagements : il voulait imposer plus lourdement les New-Yorkais gagnant plus de 500 000 $ annuels, pour financer le système. Le gouverneur, lui aussi démocrate, de l’État de New York, Andrew Cuomo, lui a coupé l’herbe sous le pied. M. Cuomo a annoncé ce weekend un…
