Judge Orders Temporary Halt To Deportations As Families Are Reunited

San Diego Judge Dana Sabraw has thrown another wrench into the Trump administration's plans for tightening security at the US border by issuing a temporary halt to deportations of families that were separated under the administration's "zero tolerance" policy.

In his ruling, the judge argues that the families need some additional time to consider whether to pursue requests for asylum. It was made in response to a request from the ACLU, which said it was responding to "persistent and increasing rumors...that mass deportations may be carried out imminently and immediately upon reunification," according to the Associated Press.


Sabraw ruled last month that the Trump administration would have 30 days to reunite the youngest children detained under the policy with their parents. The administration just barely finished the reunifications before the deadline, though it said some children could not be reunited with their parents because they had been deported, or for some other reason. The government is now working to reunite some of the older minors with their families.

These same families now must be given at least a week to consult with their children and an advocate or counsel about their chances for asylum.

The American Civil Liberties Union had asked Judge Dana Sabraw to delay deportations a week after reunification. The ACLU said in a court filing that its request is a response to “persistent and increasing rumors … that mass deportations may be carried out imminently and immediately upon reunification.”

The ACLU said parents need a week after being reunified with their children to decide whether to pursue asylum.

The decision "cannot be made until parents not only have had time to fully discuss the ramifications with their children, but also to hear from the child’s advocate or counsel, who can explain to the parent the likelihood of the child ultimately prevailing in his or her own asylum case if left behind in the U.S. (as well as where the child is likely to end up living)," the ACLU says.

DOJ attorney Scott Stewart opposed the delay, but did not address the mass deportation rumors in court, according to the Associated Press. He added that he would respond later in writing. The judge gave the department until next Monday.

The Trump administration had recently taken steps to speed up its vetting procedures to help reunite families more quickly. But Sabraw said he had begun to have second thoughts about the government's motives for speeding up the reunification process, though he later praised Jonathan White of the Office of Refugee Resettlement who said that some of the older children had already been reunited with their families and that "it is our intent to reunify children promptly."

DOJ attorneys assured the judge that the children were being well cared for and offered to have him visit the facilities where they were being housed. But Sabraw argued that "no matter how nice the environment is, it's the act of separation from a parent, particularly with young children, that matters."

On Friday, Sabraw, who has been overseeing the government's reunification efforts, ordered the Trump administration to give legal advocates 12-hours notice of when and where immigrant families would be reunited, an attempt to make the process less chaotic.

Sabraw's latest order was likely intended to show the Trump administration that it can't rush to reunite families only to immediately deport them. Migrant families will now be entitled to spend some time in the US working on their asylum claims, regardless of how quickly parents are reunited with their children.

Why these people so desperately want a constant inflow of ILLEGAL aliens into the country is just beyond me.  And how these infantiles somehow make it into adulthood and into jobs that give them power to force others to follow their twisted ideas is another mystery.

Then also try having a rational, reasoned conversation about anything except their sexuality and their dog, and these Froot Loops sound like a howling baboon.  How did our national intelligence regress back to prehistoric levels so quickly?

The SCOTUS has already ruled on this.

Random Federal Judges do not get to make up national immigration policy.

And as a FYI. There about 10 US consulates scattered all across Mexico where "families" can apply for asylum with zero chance of being separated from their children.

Ok, halt the family deportations.

The weather is nice in San Diego...

A. Give every ILLEGAL family a tent.

B. Bus them to this judges neighborhood.

C. Set up the tents in the green spaces and along the sidewalks.

D. Watch this feckless cunt judge demand these people be removed from HER gated community.



300,000,000 people in India live in EXTREME poverty...another billion or two or four suffer across the globe..."no borders"?...let the world know "If you can get to the USA, you're welcome to stay!"?

Every Liberal I put that question to chokes on it...if the USA cannot literally accept a BILLION+ "migrants/immigrants/refugees", then how many can we accept and how do we stop the ones we can't accept?

Most of these so called kids have no parents here, they were sent by coyotes! A lot of them are 18-20 and of fighting age. You figure it out for yourself. This guy is for real.

We need to put a stop to:

#1 Anchor babies.  If you are not here as a citizen, or permanent resident, your child should not get US citizenship.  That should go for all the H1B's, Student's, vacationers, temporary business visitors or embassy workers.

#2. Chain migration.  no more family members unless you support them.  Any asks for help, all of you get deported.

#3.  Asylum.  Go fix your shithole.  It will require you fight for it.


Now if you think you want to help these people, go right ahead.  Just help them where they are.  Open up your wallet and enjoy all the help you can deliver.

These require legislation, so the sicker Congress gets of these leftist District Judges presuming to make national policy, the better.  Regarding #3, Asylum, we should make asylum temporary as they do in Europe.  3 - 5 years.  Those Muslims who have flooded into Germany and been granted asylum do not get to stay forever.  We're shocked at their problems, but ours are arguably worse.  We need to make asylum temporary, and permanent resident status a separate application which usually would NOT succeed.

I would narrow the range of asylum geographically to only our continent, and only for political or religious persecution.

Drug gangs are a local law enforcement issue.  fix your shithole.

Economic issues?  fix your shithole.

Dont like your government?  fix your shithole.

Corruption?  fix your shithole.

Want to apply for residency?  Be worthy.  Contribute more than you receive.  Have knowledge or skill, be employable.  

oh yeah.  And this too.

Went to the store and rushed back to put my 2 cents in.

One of Scotus last rulings this session was to tell these piss ass liberal courts that the executive has constitutional power in these matters and they should fvck off! They also stated that if they kept it up SCOTUS would step up and quash it. Trump should tell them to go fvck themselves and stick a fork in it!

No liberal court stepped in to protect the detained children who were physically and sexually abused by Obama.


ACLU Obtains Documents Showing Widespread Abuse of Child Immigrants in U.S. Custody

The report is based on over 30,000 pages of documents dated between 2009 and 2014.

The documents show numerous cases involving federal officials’ verbal, physical and sexual abuse of migrant children; the denial of clean drinking water and adequate food; failure to provide necessary medical care; detention in freezing, unsanitary facilities; and other violations of federal law and policy and international law. The documents provide evidence that U.S. officials were aware of these abuses as they occurred, but failed to properly investigate, much less to remedy, these abuses.

Examples of the documented abuses include allegations that CBP officials:

Punched a child’s head three times

Kicked a child in the ribs

Used a stun gun on a boy, causing him to fall to the ground, shaking, with his eyes rolling back in his head

Ran over a 17-year-old with a patrol vehicle and then punched him several times

Verbally abused detained children, calling them dogs and “other ugly things”

Denied detained children permission to stand or move freely for days and threatened children who stood up with transfer to solitary confinement in a small, freezing room

Denied a pregnant minor medical attention when she reported pain, which preceded a stillbirth

Subjected a 16-year-old girl to a search in which they “forcefully spread her legs and touched her private parts so hard that she screamed”

Left a 4-pound premature baby and her minor mother in an overcrowded and dirty cell full of sick people, against medical advice

Threw out a child’s birth certificate and threatened him with sexual abuse by an adult male detainee.

The report also shows evidence of CBP holding migrant children in excess of the 72-hour maximum period permitted by law, as well as officials’ efforts to deport children without due process and via coercion.

"Why these people so desperately want a constant inflow of ILLEGAL aliens into the country is just beyond me."

The tribe wants it, so thats what happens, its not really any more complicated than that. They - as in the tribe - have been actively working to destroy the USA, dilute and corrupt the culture with a mass influx of browns and niggers, promote violence in the culture, via the music and film business, promote porn, homosexuality and every other kind of degeneracy, to weaken the culture.


No such immigration happening in israhell, nobody going on about multiculturalism, diversity and the like over there. Nope its a jewish cuntry, for jews apparently (which they of course stole). Well then thats the best place for them, ship the lot of the cunts from the US to israhell. They can have their jewish state and leave others to decide for themselves what kind of State they would like. See Hungary for an example of sensible immigration policy.

Boston Wants Ordinance Allowing Invasive DACA Babies to Vote in City Elections

Citing U.S. Census Bureau estimates, the official docket for the hearing notes that Massachusetts has one of the largest immigrant populations in the country, an estimated 1.1 million people, or 16.5 percent of the state’s population. The city of Boston itself has an estimated foreign-born population of 190,123, or 28.4 percent of the city’s population.

Boston has been a hub for immigrants and immigration since the 1820s, but the foreign-born population took a nosedive in the early 20th century, the docket says, due to “restrictive and discriminatory legislation.” After the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 overhauled the US immigration system, once again an increasingly diverse population began immigrating to Boston.

How many times have you heard a white person say of government actions, "That's NUTS" "That is sooooooo stupid" and so forth well it IS NOT "stupidity" it is a PLAN and this tells you all about it:
Review of 'The Culture of Critique'

Add in Hollywood and TV and you get t he idea.

I saw a commercial the other day a white guy with a BLACK WIFE, he was so stupid couldn't do the repair so wife, who berated him throughout the entire commercial calls a BRILLIANT BLACK MAN to do the repair in no time. THAT is going into white women's heads, social learning theory and cultivation theory have demonstrated that. TV is a form of BLACK MAGIC, in a manner of speaking, wielded by (((THE GANG))) against White people of America.

It's to alter the voting block to democrats.

Immigrants tend to come from turd world, big govy countries for the last several decades so vote for more of what their familiar with.


Simple as that.

Screwing around with a few hundred beaners while 15-20 million illegals(at least) roam the streets. Still waiting for the massive ICE sweeps, Trumptards? This is just nibbling at the edges.

do parents that send off their underage children with some human smuggler into a foreign country knowingly they will most likely be abused in many ways deserve to get their children back? especially if doing so for the specific purpose of gaining entry into another country themselves? do they not deserve to get punished for completely abandoning their children and using them as travel visas? this is the kind of behavior that should be rewarded?

I'd bet you, that if I sent my kid to the corner store alone...DHS and the cops would be at my door pronto!

Local mom FELL ASLEEP and her 2 year old walked out the door; found walking down the street in a diaper only...she spent the night in JAIL for "Child endangerment" and was without the kid for over a week!

One set of laws for them...another for us...
