U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan, the same Judge assigned to the Michael Flynn case, has just denied President Trump’s policy on preventing immigrants who have suffered gang violence or domestic abuse in their home countries from seeking asylum.
The guidelines were initially declared by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions as a way to limit asylum seekers. Per Judge Sullivan, “it is the will of Congress — not the whims of the executive” that sets the standards for expedited removal.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House Press Secretary who is never short on lies and exaggerations, said as follows:
“Today’s ruling is only the latest example of judicial activism that encourages migrants to take dangerous risks; empowers criminal organizations that spread turmoil in our hemisphere; and undermines the laws, borders, Constitution, and sovereignty of the United States. ”
Below is another immigration case ruled upon by Judge Sullivan where he ordered an airplane to return to the United States that was in mid-flight and deporting a mother and her child.
By the way, Judge Sullivan is Republican and was appointed by President Reagan.
Judge Sullivan’s ruling can be seen below.

Judge Fights Back Against Immigration Policy
I practiced law for nineteen years before I decided to spend most of my time writing. During those nineteen years, I’ve heard of some crazy courtroom drama and experienced some of my own on more than one occasion. But, every so often, one story just boggles the legal mind.
U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan from the District of Columbia, was presiding over a lawsuit filed by the A.C.L.U. (American Civil Liberties Union) and the Center for Gender and Refugee Studies. At a prior hearing, the judge was guaranteed that no deportation would take place of the plaintiffs before Friday since this case was pending. The government lied.
While the plane carrying the mother/plaintiff and her daughter were en route to El Salvador, the judge ordered for the plane to turn around. While it didn’t happen, the mother and daughter did not disembark in El Salvador and were being returned to the United States.
Per the ACLU, the judge had suggested contempt charges against the government officials. I have been advocating the same since President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions started their zero tolerance and border separation policy.
If the court issues a ruling and one side doesn’t comply, contempt is the result. And as I wrote before, that gets #### done. Being in contempt sometimes means paying a fine to the court or even spending time in jail. Order a government official to jail until the reunification process between children and their parents are complete, and you will see how fast the problems get resolved.
The unfortunate side of this is that it shows what state our country is in with regards to immigration when things like this happen. While the story is entertaining, it’s also sad.
