US Judge orders return of deported family, threatens Sessions with contempt

Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen could be called into court by U.S. Distr

Sullivan said he would hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and Homeland Security officials in contempt for the deportation if they did not comply with his demand.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan also blocked the Trump administration from deporting eight other immigrants - now held in detention - who are part of the same lawsuit against the government for allegedly wrongfully rejecting their claims for asylum.

The ACLU is claiming the two aliens from El Salvador, known in court documents only by the mother's pseudonym "Carmen", are "asylum seekers" despite their claim's failure to pass even the initial "credible fear" test conducted by Customs and Border Patrol.

"I'm not happy about this at all", he continued. But they did not disembark and the plane immediately headed back to Texas, the DHS official said. He said any delay in bringing them back would be intolerable.

Attorneys for the civil rights organization and the U.S. Department of Justice had agreed to delay removal proceedings for Carmen until 11:59 p.m. Thursday so they could argue the matter in court.

Gary Lineker jokingly sends Frank Lampard a message as Derby get hammered
The reprieve was only temporary and two goals in four minutes swung the game decisively in the visitors' favour. Chelsea legend Lampard was appointed the Derby manager in the summer - his first senior managerial job.


The plane landed in El Salvador, but Carmen and her child were allowed to return to the United States. The government, he learned, had just deported an immigrant mother and daughter who are plaintiffs in the lawsuit the judge was hearing over family separations.

A "credible fear" interview is a threshold screening that determines whether there is a "significant possibility" that an immigrant could show they are eligible for asylum in a full hearing with evidence, witnesses, and appeals.

Successful applicants typically enter the country to flee persecution due to their race, religion, nationality or political views.

"The mere fact that a country may have problems effectively policing certain crimes - such as domestic violence or gang violence - or that certain populations are more likely to be victims of crime, can not itself establish an asylum claim", Sessions wrote in June, the paper noted.

The ACLU is using Carmen's story and the similar experiences of the other immigrants to challenge Sessions' ruling on asylum.

Falling lira pushes Turkey towards uncharted territory
The diplomatic dispute with the USA was one of the triggers that turned market jitters into a full-blown route this week. A combination of factors, according to experts, have led to fears the country is sliding into an economic crisis.


The Obama administration argued at the time that the woman's gender was 'immutable.' And because she was a Roman Catholic from predominantly Catholic Guatemala, her married status was also beyond her control to reverse.

What about the ACLU lawsuit? If so, they get that chance; if not, they are quickly removed from the United States, according to the ACLU. The reforms are already working to reduce the previously skyrocketing number of illegal aliens claiming to be "asylum seekers" after being caught by Border Patrol, but they have sent the open-borders left into a rage. Many disappear instead of showing up.

In court on Thursday, Sullivan also temporarily blocked the United States from deporting plaintiffs in the lawsuit, most of whom are women fleeing sexual abuse and gang violence.

ACLU attorney Jennifer Chang Newell declared this week in a statement that changing the standard was 'a naked attempt by the Trump administration to eviscerate our country's asylum protections'. The suit said the mother suffered "two decades of horrific sexual abuse by her husband", who raped and threatened her after she moved away.

Manchester United bid for Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng
The German tabloid Bild reported that Boateng called United coach Jose Mourinho to tell him he won't be heading to Old Trafford. Toby Alderweireld remains another option, largely because Tottenham have made it clear they are willing to sell.
