Trump Can Clean Up His Own Immigration Mess
Judge Dana Sabraw made clear that the Trump administration is “100 percent” responsible for reuniting families under their border separation policy and the speed at which they are working at is “unacceptable.”
Originally, the Trump Administration wanted the A.C.L.U. (The American Civil Liberties Union) to handle the mess and reunite the families themselves. When have you ever heard of a government saying they messed something up and ask for someone else to fix it? Unheard of, just like most things with this administration.
Judge Sabraw also wants one person in charge, which was my position from the beginning. Sabraw may be inching towards contempt charges if that is the case and the Trump administration continues to fail to comply with the court’s order.
Hold someone in contempt, put them in jail, and you will see how fast everything gets resolved.
“Many of these parents were removed from the country without their child, all of this is the result of the government’s separation and then inability and failure to track and reunite.”
“In reviewing the status report it appears that only 12 or 13 of close to 500 parents have been located, which is just unacceptable at this point.” Judge Sabraw

Courts throughout the country are experiencing one of two things: either immigration authorities fail to put a court date on the notice or a court date is listed without having it been scheduled with the courts.
