Judge Orders Return Of Deported Asylum-Seekers

  • Attorney General Jeff Sessions speaks at a news conference in Baltimore Tuesday Dec. 12 2017 to announce efforts to combat the MS-13 street gang with law enforcement and immigration actions

Immigration officials have returned a mother and daughter to the United States after they were deported, which had angered a federal judge who was hearing their lawsuit.

It all stems back to a mother, known in court filings as only "Carmen".

The mother and daughter are said to have arrived back in Texas, where they were being held, by Thursday night.

Washington DC District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan said that it was unacceptable that people claiming asylum had been removed while lawyers argued their case.

The pair were among 12 plaintiffs in a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) challenging changes in asylum policies ordered by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

"I'm not happy about this at all, " the judge said, according to the Post. "This is not acceptable".

The ACLU, who represents Carmen and her daughter, explained that Carmen had been abused for years in El Salvador, noting she suffered "two decades of horrific sexual abuse by her husband and death threats from a violent gang".

Her asylum attempt appeared to have been thwarted by new rules introduced by the Trump administration in June, which block courts from granting asylum to victims of domestic abuse and gang violence. 'I'm also directing the government to turn that plane around, either now or when it lands.

According to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Sullivan's order meant the taxpayer wound up paying for a needless round-trip flight.

The Justice Department declined a request for comment.

"Despite asylum officers finding that their accounts were truthful, they. ultimately denied them asylum protection because they did not have a 'credible fear of persecution'".

According to the lawsuit, the migrant mother, known under the alias "Carmen", came to the U.S. with her young daughter after two decades of sexual abuse from her husband and death threats from a local gang in her native El Salvador.

In June, the Trump administration determined that fleeing domestic violence and gang violence would no longer be accepted as a means for refuge in the United States.

Sessions" unexpected announcement negated a comparatively more vague 2014 Board of Immigration Appeals ruling that married women in developing countries "who are unable to leave their relationship" can be considered a "particular social group' for asylum purposes.

Two of the children and their mothers were deported before the suit was filed. 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.

"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 at the time. But now they have to show that the government "condones" the violence or "is completely helpless" to protect them, the lawsuit says.
