A federal judge just ordered the Trump administration to speed up family reunifications

A federal judge has ordered the Trump administration to reunify families that have been separated by the administration’s “zero tolerance” prosecution policy — and soon.

Judge Dana M. Sabraw of the United States District Court for the Southern District of California granted a preliminary injunction late Tuesday night, ordering the federal government to reunite children under the age of 5 with their parents within 14 days, and all other children who’ve been separated from their parents within 30 days. The government said Tuesday there are 2,044 separated children still in federal custody.

Judge Sabraw also ordered the government to stop deporting parents without their children — something that has already happened to an unknown number of parents — unless the parent “affirmatively, knowingly, and voluntarily” agrees to be deported alone. He further ordered that detained parents must be allowed to speak to their children on the phone within 10 days, after multiple reports of parents not being able to make phone calls or locate the facilities where their children are being held.

Sabraw’s order came after the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) sued the Trump administration to try to speed up the process to reunify families and stop further separations. But Trump administration lawyers claimed the injunction could delay reunification even longer in a filing on Tuesday, and argued that President Donald Trump had solved the problem with his executive order ending separations last week.

I have been following this case since the first ruling in early June. This judge is a GOP appointed judge but ruled that this no tolerance policy is not acceptable

6. drumpf isn't worried, his russian repug pals on SCOTUS will give him a pass.

Wonder if just using the word "national security" is sufficient to justify caging babies? Based on yesterdays' ruling, I have to say that it looks like the answer is yes. This country just took a giant leap towards dictatorship with this wrong and cowardly ruling.

9. GREAT NEWS BUT

Rump owns the supreme court, so what will happen? I fear appeal will stop this decision from taking affect!
