Jeff Sessions threatened by judge with contempt over asylum deportation


#1

A furious federal judge threatened Thursday to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt of court in a touchy case over asylum seekers’ rights after learning that some plaintiffs might have been deported in defiance of his wishes.

Judge Emmet G. Sullivan said the government appeared to have “spirited away” a woman and her child who’d fled a violent husband and were seeking asylum in the U.S., but who were struggling against a new tougher asylum policy Mr. Sessions created in June.
