Additional Ms. L. ACLU Settlement Enforcement Brief — On Those 21 Sets Of Parents… Seeking Their Children

Here it is. It is thirteen pages of. . . well-reasoned. . . wisdom.

Yesterday, yet another 13 page brief explaining why these 21 parents should be given a complimentary flight back to the US to reunite with, and retrieve their children. It is unfathomable that the Trump lawyers are fighting this tooth and nail — but Judge Sabraw will — correctly — rule against Trump. The money quote:

. . . .[T]he Class Members seek only to come back to the U.S. for the opportunity to apply for asylum that the immigration statutes already give them — an opportunity they were wrongly denied by [Trump] Defendants’ family separation practices. See generally 8 U.S.C. § 1225; 8 U.S.C. § 1158. [Trump] Defendants can give them that opportunity by either affording them new credible fear interviews, see 8 U.S.C. § 1225(b)(1)(B), or by putting them directly into regular removal proceedings before an immigration judge, see 8 U.S.C. § 1229a. [Trump] Defendants followed these very paths for 30 deported Class Members who returned to this country on their own and claimed a fear of return. . . .

Now you know — and let us hope for a US Women’s Soccer victory, and good racing, mañana. . . .
