In the early afternoon, a federal judge issues a preliminary injunction blocking the Trump Administration’s practice of expelling unaccompanied minors back to their home countries.
Later in the afternoon, 33 unaccompanied children are flown to Guatemala despite the judge’s order. ICE officials say they were not informed of the judge’s ruling by DHS.
The administration, specifically Homeland Security and Border Patrol, has expelled 13,000 unaccompanied children from the U.S. since March.
In most if not all cases, the U.S. has lost track of or otherwise never determined the identity of the children’s parents.
Expulsions are not the same as deportations. Deportations come after an immigrant goes through the immigration process and is determined to not be legally allowed in the United States. Expulsion means immigrants are forced out of the country without being reviewed for asylum.
Donald Trump was not the first criminal elected to public office, and he won’t be the last. It’s up to US to hold them accountable.
