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.” -

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has apologized to Russian leader Vladimir Putin over last year’s shooting down of a Russian air force jet by Turkey’s military, the Kremlin said on Monday, opening the way for Russia to lift economic sanctions. The Russian jet was shot down, with the loss of the pilot, in November while it took part in the Kremlin’s military campaign in Syria. Ankara said it acted lawfully because the plane had crossed into Turkish air space; Moscow denied that happened. “I want to once again express my sympathy and deep condolences to the family of the Russian pilot…

50 Cent arrested in Caribbean island nation — for cursing!

50 Cent

It wasn’t exactly the sort of response he usually gets after a big show. After 50 Cent headlined a music festival in the Caribbean island nation of St. Kitts and Nevis on June 25, local police arrested the rapper — for uttering a particular bit of profanity during his set! TMZ reports that cops jailed Fiddy after he used the word “mother—–” — which is apparently illegal there — during his concert. In a fan-posted Instagram video, the rapper can be heard using the curse word while performing his song “P.I.M.P.” in front of a crowd of 40,000 people. Sources…

Supreme Court blocks Obama immigration actions

By Lydia Wheeler and Jordan Fabian – 06/23/16 10:41 AM EDT The Supreme Court dealt a critical blow to President Obama’s immigration policies on Thursday, deadlocking in a 4-4 decision over two controversial programs the White House wants to implement. The tie vote leaves in place a lower court ruling that blocks a program allowing undocumented workers who are parents of U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents to remain in the United States for three years and to apply for work permits. It also prevents the administration from expanding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program issued by Obama in…

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is going to announce Wednesday he will run for re-election, multiple media outlets reported, reversing his prior pledge that he would not try to return to the Senate if he lost his bid for the Republican presidential nomination. Rubio dropped out of the presidential race in March after losing the winner-take-all Florida primary toDonald Trump. He repeatedly insisted afterward that he would be a private citizen once his term expired at the end of this year. But top Republicans have urged him to run, and a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday indicated that Rubio is the only GOP candidate who would…

Dems to Clinton: Ignore Trump on past scandals

The Hill

Democrats are offering a piece of straightforward advice for Hillary Clinton as Donald Trumpthreatens to dig up scandals from the 1990s: Ignore him. Clinton’s supporters shrug off concerns that the Trump attacks could stick. They say most voters will see Trump as dredging up rumors as part of an anything-goes strategy to win the White House. And they think it will backfire on the presumptive GOP nominee, especially if Clinton responds with arguments about how she wants to solve the nation’s problems. “You hear one presidential candidate talking about something 30 years ago, blaming her for his actions and blaming…
