U.S. to reunite only half of young migrant children by Tuesday deadline

U.S. to reunite only half of young migrant children by Tuesday deadlineBy Marty Graham and Tom Hals SAN DIEGO/WILMINGTON, Del. (Reuters) – The U.S. government is struggling to reunite immigrant families it separated at the border with Mexico and only about half the children under age 5 will be back with their parents by a court-ordered deadline of Tuesday, a government attorney told a judge on Monday. U.S. Judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego last month ordered the government to reunite the approximately 100 children under the age of 5 by Tuesday, and the estimated 2,000 older children by July 26. Sarah Fabian, an attorney with the U.S. Department of Justice, said 54 children younger than 5 would be reunited with parents by the end of Tuesday, and the number could increase depending on background checks.


US judge extends deadline for reuniting migrant children

US judge extends deadline for reuniting migrant childrenA US judge on Monday gave the government more time to reunite migrant children aged five or younger with their parents separated as a consequence of a “zero tolerance” policy, US media reported. The decision came after a government lawyer said around half of the 102 young children could be placed back with their parents by the previously given deadline of Tuesday. Following domestic and global outcry over the separations, in which some children were kept in chain-link enclosures, Trump ended the practice on June 20.


Brett Kavanaugh: Trump reveals Supreme Court justice choice triggering major confirmation battle

Brett Kavanaugh: Trump reveals Supreme Court justice choice triggering major confirmation battleDonald Trump has revealed he is nominating Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court – a move many believe will be among his most significant as president. Ending days of frenzied speculation since the announcement last month from Justice Antony Kennedy that he was resigning, Mr Trump used a prime-time televised address to reveal his selection, a candidate who will create a strong conservative majority on the bench. Legal experts believe the decision could change the nature of the court for years, if not decades, and help roll back some of its most significant rulings, among them the landmark Roe v Wade, which guarantees the right to a legal abortion.
