The federal judge presiding over the case against former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn rebuked the White House Wednesday; saying all “deported asylum seekers” must be returned to the United States until their applications are fully processed.
“The ruling from U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan in Washington came a day after the same judge presided over a contentious sentencing hearing for former national security adviser Michael Flynn,” writes Fox News. “He later delayed Flynn’s sentencing until 2019, as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.”
The new ruling claims the Trump administration violated federal guidelines by deporting the migrants.
“The Court holds that it has jurisdiction to hear plaintiffs’ challenges to the credible fear policies, that it has the authority to order the injunctive relief, and that, with the exception of two policies, the new credible fear policies are arbitrary, capricious, and in violation of the immigration laws,” Sullivan said.
“The government [must] return to the United States the plaintiffs who were unlawfully deported and to provide them with new credible fear determinations consistent with the immigration laws,” he concluded.
