Deported Asylum-Seekers Brought Back On Angry Judge's Orders

Judge orders government to turn around deportation plane Judge Orders Plane Carrying Deported Mother And Child Turned Around

Carmen is a pseudonym for the woman who, along with her daughter, was seeking asylum because of domestic abuse in El Salvador.

The case highlights how rights advocates are increasingly turning to the courts to block the Trump administration's immigration policies, including efforts to crack down on illegal immigration from Central America.

He reportedly also said Attorney General Jeff Sessions could be held in contempt of court for the deportation.

In addition to ordering the government to get the mother and daughter back, Sullivan 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.

Four of the ACLU plaintiffs had already been deported, Chang Newell said, and the Salvadoran woman, known as Carmen, and her daughter were at imminent risk of being deported this week.

According to the ACLU, Carmen's husband had regularly raped, stalked and threatened to kill her for two decades. When court was in recess in the middle of the hearing, however, an attorney with the ACLU-which is representing them in a lawsuit-received an email notification that Carmen and her child had been taken from the detention center where they had been kept, and were being deported.

The ACLU lawsuit was filed on behalf of 12 people from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala - three of them children - all who failed their initial "credible fear" interviews, the Post reported.

When informed, the Bill Clinton-appointed Judge Sullivan became outraged.

The accusations are among a long list of scandalous claims contained in her new book, " Unhinged ", set to come out August 14. The White House initially said Newman had resigned but after the "Big Brother" appearance said she had been fired.

A federal judge on Thursday ordered a plane carrying two undocumented immigrants who had just been deported to El Salvador be turned around because they are witnesses in a lawsuit against the Trump administration.

In June, Sessions reversed a long-standing policy that considered asylum cases on the basis of gang and domestic violence, and now allows fast-track rejections and deportations if those are the only factors involved.

Sullivan later added he was "directing the government to turn that plane around either now or when it lands, turn that plane around and bring those people back to the United States".

The suit also says asylum adjudicators are required to ignore federal appellate decisions that conflict with the new credible fear policies, "thus purporting to make the immigration authorities the ultimate arbiters of the law". After she left her husband, taking her daughter with her, she claimed gang members in town targeted her as a single mother, threatening to kill her and her daughter unless she paid them a monthly sum.

Officials reportedly said the plane was on its way back to the US later in the day.

A Justice Department official said the two arrived back in Houston at 5:20 p.m. local time and were returned to the Dilley South Texas Family Residential Center, a facility run by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, around 11 p.m. or midnight local time.

Neither is a "credible fear of persecution".

She also says four of her five co-workers were killed by a gang over the a year ago, and she fears she's next.
