    "A federal judge Thursday chastised Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Trump administration for attempting to remove a mother and daughter from the country in the midst of a court hearing appealing their deportation. As first reported by The Washington Post, D.C. District Judge Emmet Sullivan threatened to hold sessions in contempt of court as he halted the deportation process.
    The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit this week on behalf of twelve plaintiffs, challenging Sessions' decision to refuse asylum based on claims of domestic and gang violence. Attorneys for the ACLU and the Justice Department reached an agreement to stay one plaintiff's deportation until after the hearing.
    During a recess, ACLU attorneys learned that the plaintiff, known in court papers as Carmen, and her daughter had been removed from a detention center and were potentially on their way to the San Antonio airport, where they would be placed on a flight leaving the United States.
    Sullivan halted the deportation, and then reportedly called for the Justice Department to "turn the plane around."
    "This is pretty outrageous," Sullivan said after learning about the removal, according to the Post. "That someone seeking justice in U.S. court is spirited away while her attorneys are arguing for justice for her?"
    The judge continued that he was "not happy about this at all," and that the situation was "not acceptable."

    This will get interesting given that Trump is now tweeting that Sessions is not doing his job, by ending the Mueller investigation. The contempt charge is just the leverage Trump needs. Come on GOP yank those Trump reins hard before the constitutional crisis blows up even more.

    I am really glad these two asylum seekers were returned to the United States, but why just threaten to hold Sessions in contempt? Why didn't they actually charge him with contempt since he so blatantly ignored a judges orders? So basically all Sessions got was a slap on the wrist, and nothing will become of it other than a little bad press. Sessions, along with all of Trump's administration, are testing the waters to become fully authoritarian. They need to be held accountable immediately when they do this kind of shit!

    Something similar just happened in Germany. The city of Bochum was charged to pay a fine for turning over a man, suspected to be a former member of al qaida and still being active in the radical scene, to the federal police who deported him to Tunisia. But there was still a case pending in court about the question if he could be deported at all since he, as a terror suspect, as which he was already held in prison in Germany, might have faced torture when returned to Tunisia. The original date for the deportation was cancelled before the court took on the case. They were informed about it but not that he was then book on another deportation flight the next day. On Wednesday evening the court issued their sentence, which was a denial of deportation, but it was already late in the evening, the sentence only reached the responsible agencies in the morning and the deportation took place at night. The executive has cheated the judiciary and they got away with a slap on the wrist. Do not make the same mistake in America. Make the executive pay for not following the rule of law.

    Why do we allow these people to use unproven lies to support and justify mistreatment of thousands of fellow human beings. If you would believe the lies coming from the administration and FOX news, every other family arrested are terrorist or gang members using kids to gain entry into the US (The facts shown “NOT” one proven case, where this is true). Further we see ICE Agents breaking down doors with 20 + agents with machine guns in hand pulling people from their homes when there hasn't been a proven case where an "emigrant family" has pulled a gun during an ICE Raid. Then why are we allowing these "GESTAPO" methods to be used, we should all be really pissed at these policies. We need new laws, procedures and some human compassion and behavior that conforms to accepted standards of morality and respectability towards other human beings regardless of their situation..

    Sessions' actions reflect the utter contempt the Trump administration has for human pain and suffering. Jeff Sessions was spared the long arm of the law when he lied through his teeth to the Committee. He should have gone to jail last year, anyway. But, should he attempt to go after this poor woman again -- or anyone who's still awaiting a hearing -- Sessions should be immediately cuffed and taken to jail. I'm sorry for sounding nasty, but I think Jeff Sessions is a weasel and capable of the most hideous and nefarious activities imaginable. He's a TAK through and through.
    TAK -- Trump Ass Kisser.
