A US District Court Judge ruled Monday that recently “reunited families” along the US-Mexico border could not be “deported” to their home countries until further review; setting the stage for a high-stakes showdown with the Trump administration.
San Diego-based Judge Dana Sabraw ruled this week that attorneys and immigration officials needed to more time to decide the fate of those families separated while attempting to illegally enter the United States.
The ruling effectively halts the federal government from deporting the migrant families; raising new questions over whether they should be held in family detention centers or released temporarily into the United States.
“A one-week stay is a reasonable and appropriate remedy to ensure that the unimaginable trauma these families have suffered does not turn even worse because parents made an uninformed decision about the fate of their child,” said a lawyer with the ACLU.

‘CARAVAN’ CROSSING? Migrant Group ARRIVES at US Border
Hundreds of migrants from Central America arrived at the US-Mexico border Wednesday night; setting the stage for a looming showdown with President Trump who pledged to refuse entry should the workers attempt to enter the United States.
According to Reuters, the migrants began streaming into Tijuana this week; vowing to cross into California starting Saturday morning.
“The wall doesn’t look that tall,” said a 15-year-old girl from Honduras. “I really want to cross it.”
“Thanks to god we’re here,” added a 34-year old worker from Guatemala -accompanied by two children.
Earlier this month, President Trump demanded Mexico crackdown on the migrant ‘caravan’ as it worked its way through Mexico towards the United States.
While Mexican authorities did prevent some workers from making their way towards the border -with initial estimates being upwards of 1500 people- it remains unclear how federal authorities will handle the asylum seekers.
