Judge orders asylum-seeking mother, daughter returned to U.S.

Thousands of people seek asylum each month at U.S. Customs and Border Protection stations along the southwest border.

It was the latest black eye for the administration's deportation machinery, which just weeks ago drew the ire of other judges after admitting hundreds of illegal immigrant parents were ousted from the country without their children during the chaos of the zero-tolerance border policy.

Attorneys for the civil rights organization and the U.S. Department of Justice had agreed to delay removal proceedings for Carmen until 11:59 p.m. Thursday so they could argue the matter in court.

The lawsuit was brought on behalf of immigrants referred to only by their pseudonyms in court: Grace, Mina, Gina, Mona, Maria, Carmen and her daughter J.A.C.F. and Gio.

Carmen fled El Salvador in June with her daughter, claiming they received violent threats from gang members.

According to the ACLU, Carmen's husband had regularly raped, stalked and threatened to kill her for two decades. Turn that plane around and bring those people back to the United States'.

When informed, the Bill Clinton-appointed Judge Sullivan became outraged.

"In compliance with the court's order, upon arrival in El Salvador, the plaintiffs did not disembark and were promptly returned to the United States", a DHS official said Thursday evening.

"We also have dirty immigration lawyers who are encouraging their otherwise unlawfully present clients to make false claims of asylum, providing them with the magic words needed to trigger the credible fear process", Sessions said past year.

The new policy is being carried out both by asylum officers and immigration judges, leading to soeedy denials in cases where immigrant-rights advocates say they would clearly have been at least given the chance to make a full case. Most are from Central American countries torn apart by violence, gangs, and corruption.

A federal judge halted a deportation its tracks on Thursday after learning the mother-daughter pair being sent back to El Salvador was in the middle of their asylum appeal trial.

During court, Sullivan was incensed at the report that one of the plaintiffs was in the process of being deported, according to the ACLU and The Washington Post.

The Justice Department declined a request for comment.

The mother and daughter are said to have arrived back in Texas, where they were being held, by Thursday night.

As Carmen is with a child, and, therefore, can not be held in a typical facility for adults or separated from her child under current policy, it is likely they will be released into the American interior, free, despite having failed their credible fear determination.

Asylum seekers previously had to show that the government in their native country was "unable or unwilling" to protect them.

She also says four of her five co-workers were killed by a gang over the past year, and she fears she's next.

"The new policies unlawfully elevate the credible fear standard far above the low threshold Congress enacted and prevent asylum seekers from ever pursuing their asylum claims", the suit says.
