Judge threatens to hold Jeff Sessions in contempt over deportation during asylum hearing

  • Published on Aug 10, 2018
  • A federal judge is threatening to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions and other officials in contempt. So far, there's been no reaction from the Justice Department. Judge Emmet Sullivan said it was "unacceptable" for the government to deport a mother and daughter during a court hearing on their request for asylum and ordered their plane to return to the U.S. immediately.

    Judges are supposed to be impartial. I hope he's kicked off the bench. I've been abused and harassed by gangs where was my help. And my children? I had no help. I have no family.

    We did it before, so who cares. When state and local officials began to protest the arrival of these overwhelmingly poor and black migrants, the U.S. government classified them as economic migrants rather than as refugees, making them ineligible to receive asylum and remain in the United States. And to deter future asylum seekers from Haiti, the government placed the Haitians in a hastily-assembled network of detention centers, jails and prisons.

    We need to hold CONGRESS ACCOUNTABLE!! This could have been resolved a year ago. All needs to be heard. But not all are telling the truth! The government allowed illegal immigration during Obama’s presidency!! Now, CONGRESS NEEDS TO CORRECT THE IMMIGRATION POLICIES!! Until then, these issues will continue!! A merit system would help all immigrants here in US. But if she came to US illegally, the laws have not been changed. Illegal is still illegal.

    Trump will just pardon Sessions if there are ever charges brought on him. Sadly this will do nothing till we get the republicans out.

    I don't know why we don't just go ahead and open the border completely. I am sure nothing bad would happen. The world is a nice place filled with good decent people of color. It's us white males who are the only evil doers. Isn't that right or am I simply stark staring nuts?

      Did you even watch the video? This has nothing to do with opening the boarder! Your the kind of person that fights for people to come here "legally" yet this story is about denying people of even the chance to come here? And yes I'm sure this mother and daughter will be out killing and raping people as soon as they become citizens!

    Open the flood gates NOW. No more borders. Let them ALL IN just like they have been doing for the past 20-30 years. 11 million ILLEGALS that's just the start. We need 150 million. Everybody having a complaint should come here rather bother to fix their OWN country. They fully understand that Uncle Sam and his taxpayers are the WORLD'S BABY DADDY. Free education,food stamps,housing,medical care. The only way you will ever stop this is it has to SUCK to be an ILLEGAL in America. And that word has to get back to their OWN COUNTRY. And the word is...DON'T COME HERE!!

    If Democratic Socialist Party doesn't like the immigration laws they shouldn't have passed them and they should work out a new immigration law and pass it! Refuse to cooperate with the Republicans and they have no alternative but to follow the law that is on the books

      B. K. What law are you asking about?Equal law enforcement for everyone.Prosecuting Hillary Clinton,And the Obama Cartel State Department?Or the laws that dictate returning illegals to the border?Or the libtards judges orders to return illegals back to the USA?If I was Sessions,I'd fire 100%of the Obama's Cartel and follow the laws as they are written,Not as Socialist Party Idiots demand

    • Ed Robbins

      keith parkhill I know that Bill Clinton deported 12,000,000 illigal aliens, Obama had kids in cages although fake news tried to make it look like Trump . I know that Illegals are getting precious funds that our homeless vets or other citizens don't get. I know that if I don't like the law's or policy I would work hand in hand despite party lines and pass real immigration reform not just block votes year after year.If both parties wanted to fix the process they would both work together.Blaming the problems on each other has fixed nothing.The blame game is just a game.We need new law and enforcement to be systematic no matter what state you are in

      Karim Gang Yes, the second civil war is coming. The first time Democrats formed the Confederacy to keep slavery and the Republicans had to take back the nation. This time the Democrats have gone full socialist to keep open borders so they can have as many votes and illegal slaves as needed..so yes, it's time for a second culling of stupidy. Buckle up traitors, it's going to get bloody.

    Lol trump will pardon him in 15 minutes. Zero tolerance and building the wall is what the majority want. Get used to it, it won't change. And no more asylum, your problems aren't ours.

      keith parkhill this statement makes no sense at all. Lost by there million? Try again, this time use english.

      keith parkhill Article II, Section 2, Clause 1 of the Constitution says: “The President … shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.” after which, it is as if the crime were never committed. The power to pardon is one of the least limited powers granted to the President in the Constitution. Read something sometime. It took me literally a minute to find that for you. PS. Your misinformation is based on refusing a pardon. It would protect against self incrimination on state charges. These charges are federal, so it does not apply. I know your heart is broken, but isn't a damn thing liberal can do about it.

      Sgt oldschool A pardon is a admission of guilt and does not remove a charge. They will disbar Sessions.

      James Redic us devils? Really who is "us devils"? I'm sure I'm sure I won't fit your classification. The majority already made it clear, see the 2016 election results, we want secure borders. As for asylum, if you're being persecuted by your government, fight back. That's how we made America. If you're being abused by a spouse, Which is the case here, you don't need asylum. You need to move, or better still, fight back.
