    "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."

    Sitting on a branch over a river bank sucking on his corn pipe, that's exactly where Sessions should be. Maybe even if he were the one who was squealing like a pig, that would be more fitting.

    “We can be just as bad as those gangs”. Yes, that IS what they’re saying. Also, I know it’s opening a huge can of worms but how about talking about US interventions and activity which were conducive to the current violence in these Central American countries: Honduras, San Salvador, Guatemala?

    I do love how there are just some people in politics that *everyone* hates, such as Sessions and Betsy DeVos. If only mutual hatred could work on other things like war.

    don't be scared.. maybe forever doesn't exists and you won't have to pay forever.
    you claim refugees are cowards and should stand and fight for their homeland.. not run from evildoers.
    and then take side of cowards running from evildoers and letting the lawless rule their villages.

    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!

    How about name the REAL PROBLEM! Even saying it's "gangs" isn't naming the problem. Women and children are not the problem. Women are not "just as bad". MALE VIOLENCE, MALE DOMINATION, MALE SUPREMACY AND PATRIARCHAL RELIGIONS ARE THE WORST PROBLEMS IN THE WORLD.
