Judge Orders Plane Carrying Deported Mother And Child Turned Around

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

The American Civil Liberties Union sued the US government Tuesday over its efforts to prevent immigrants from seeking asylum due to domestic and gang violence in their home countries.

As the Post reports, Judge Sullivan ordered the government to "turn the plane around".

A US district judge has temporarily blocked further deportation of plaintiffs in the case after the government tried to return two asylum-seeking plaintiffs to El Salvador Thursday.

"I'm not happy about this at all", Sullivan said. "This is not acceptable".

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.

Under a court order issued on Thursday, those eight asylum-seekers, including the mother and daughter, will be allowed to remain in the US while Sullivan considers the case. In instructing the government to overrule the expulsion, he pressurized to hold government representatives from Attorney General Jeff Sessions on down in disrespect said a lawyer for the plaintiffs.

A spokeswoman for U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement, which implements deportations, did not respond to questions about why Carmen and her daughter were removed from the country.

The pair, who are among a dozen victims of gang and domestic violence fighting deportation after their asylum applications were rejected in recent weeks, were put on a flight from Houston, Texas, to El Salvador early Thursday, a day after government lawyers had assured the judge in Washington, D.C., that they'd hold off on the planned removal until midnight on Thursday.

The ACLU said its client, identified only as Carmen, was raped by her husband for two decades and faced death threats from a violent gang.

The Justice Department declined a request for comment, the Post reported. Those who pass get a full hearing in immigration court.

Sullivan agreed with the American Civil Liberties Union that the immigrants they are representing in a federal lawsuit should not be deported while their cases are pending.

A district judge in Washington halted a deportation already in progress for an El Salvadoran mother, going by the pseudonym Carmen, and her daughter.

"The new policies unlawfully elevate the credible fear standard far above the low threshold Congress enacted and prevent asylum seekers from ever pursuing their asylum claims", the suit says.

He said the changes were meant to get the asylum system back to its original intent of providing protections to those fleeing government persecution for their race, religion, political beliefs or membership in some other protected class.

The ACLU was in court on 9 August 2018, successfully seeking an emergency stay of removal for plaintiffs - many of whom are women fleeing extreme sexual and gang violence.

When they arrived in the United States in June, they were detained and were set to be deported after failing to clear an initial screening by an asylum officer, known as a credible fear interview.
