Homeland Security RETURNS deported woman and her daughter after judge's order

Judge blocks asylum seekers from deportation

Judge blocks asylum seekers from deportation

An angry federal judge ordered a plane carrying a mother and her daughter to turn around and head back to United States, hours after being whisked away by USA authorities before a court hearing on their deportation status could be finished.

The plaintiffs on the plane are identified in the lawsuit as Carmen and her minor daughter, although Carmen is a pseudonym, the network reported.

"He should be [held in contempt]", Schmidt said, responding to Tur's description of a judge's threat to hold Sessions in contempt over the deportation.

"That someone seeking justice in US court is spirited away while her attorneys are arguing for justice for her?" he said, according to the Washington Post.

The lawsuit brought by the ACLU is challenging a recent decision by Sessions to make it almost impossible for victims of domestic violence and gangs to qualify for asylum in the US.

A plane carrying the mother-daughter pair landed in El Salvador but they returned to the United States on another flight.

An American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)-represented mother-daughter pair, caught crossing the southern border, were being moved in preparation for removal hundreds of miles away in Texas.

"I'm not happy about this at all", he continued. It challenges a recent tightening on standards for seeking US asylum, which makes it far more hard for those fleeing domestic or gang violence to win the right to remain in the United States.

Sullivan threatened Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the lawyers' ultimate boss, with contempt of court.

"It must have been absolutely terrifying for them to think they would be returning to a country where they raised very credible claims of persecution and death", Eunice Lee-co-counsel to the mother and daughter-told the Washington Post.

During the hearing, the judge ordered a temporary stay on deporting the nine women and three children who filed the lawsuit, according to a court filing.

"We also have dirty immigration lawyers who are encouraging their otherwise unlawfully present clients to make false claims of asylum, providing them with the magic words needed to trigger the credible fear process", Sessions said previous year.

The Trump administration's position is that many asylum-seekers are gaming the system by exaggerating their fear of returning home.

The ACLU had asked that its plaintiffs be allowed to remain in the US while the case proceeded.

Asylum seekers previously had to show that the government in their native country was "unable or unwilling" to protect them. Two of the children and their mothers have already been deported.
