Federal judge threatens Sessions with contempt

U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan threatened two cabinet members with contempt after being told that the two plaintiffs in a lawsuit before him were on a plane headed to Central America. He ordered them to be returned immediately.

If they were not, the judge said, Sessions, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and other senior Homeland Security officials would have to convince him not to hold them in contempt of court.

The two are the plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed this week against the administration over efforts to prevent immigrants from seeking asylum because of domestic and gang violence in their home countries. The lawsuit asks the judge to invalidate Sessions' June 11 decision to restrict the kinds of cases that qualify for asylum.

The message got through - the two were not allowed to deplane in El Salvador and were being flown back.
