Let’s see how this plays out. Hopefully they have been keeping better track of the children than it appears.

(CNN)A federal judge in California late Tuesday ordered a halt to most family separations at the US border and the reunification of all families that have been separated in the first major rebuke to the Trump administration during ongoing furor over family separations at the border.

The court order specifically requires federal officials to stop detaining parents apart from their minor children, absent a determination the parent is unfit or the parent declines reunification; reunify all parents with their minor children who are under the age of 5 within 14 days and reunify all parents with their minor children age 5 and older within 30 days.

The order also mandates that officials provide parents contact with their children by phone within 10 days, if the parent is not already in contact with his or her child.

"Plaintiffs have demonstrated a likelihood of success on the merits, irreparable harm, and that the balance of equities and the public interest weigh in their favor, thus warranting issuance of a preliminary injunction," US District Court Judge Dana Sabraw wrote Tuesday.

Federal judge orders US border authorities to reunite families within 30 days

Federal judge orders US border authorities to reunite families within 30 days
By The Associated Press

"If the children are younger than 5, they must be reunified within 14 days of the order, issued Tuesday."
"U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego issued the order in a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union. The lawsuit involves a 7-year-old girl who was separated from her Congolese mother and a 14-year-old boy who was separated from his Brazilian mother."
"Sabraw also issued a nationwide injunction on future family separations, unless the parent is deemed unfit."

Those are excellent orders and ruling by the Federal Judge! They should help to offer more protections to the immigrant children as well as bring peace of mind to their parents. The Nationwide Injunction is what was sure needed at this time! KUDOS to Judge Sabraw!

It's the right thing to do. But, the children should not be a free pass to take off and not show up to their hearings.

Not necessarily the right thing, and Flores is still the law. So this decision contravenes Flores. The goal of the left is catch and release and further burden the taxpayer with a never ending number of these people.

We either control our own country or we do not. If we do not then open borders wins.

I also note that this is another DC judge issuing a national injunction. That is another tactic the left has been employing while judge shopping. It is pernicious.

This ridiculous detention policy is costing the taxpayer a shit ton of money. So spare me the fiscal excuses.

As I have shown in other threads, the majority of immigrants show up to their hearings. This myth that a large number of them skip is largely unfounded.

Asylum seekers have an extremely high rate of appearance. Maybe we shouldn’t be blocking them.

It costs far more once these people become catch and release and disappear.

Spare me your preference for illegals over the citizen. How many is enough.

For the love of God, seeking asylum is NOT ILLEGAL.

I thought you would know that since your fancy yourself a law expert (lol)
