In the same case in August, an angry Sullivan rapped the Justice Department for having deported a mother and daughter, who were plaintiffs, back to El Salvador. The mother had fled "horrific" sexual abuse at the hands of her husband, and death threats from a local gang. Sullivan ordered the feds to turn her plane back around, and not to deport any other plaintiffs while the case was pending.
Sullivan's ruling allows the plaintiffs to continue to seek asylum through court proceedings in the U.S., and orders any who were deported before the order to be returned. The Justice Department asked the judge in a court filing Wednesday to stay his ruling as it would apply to asylum seekers who are not involved with the lawsuit while it decides whether to appeal the order. "One reason for this is the importance of applying consistent and readily discernable policies within the expedited removal system—should this Court’s decision not hold up on appeal, it would result in changing and confusing alterations of the policies needed to screen tens of thousands of aliens arriving at our borders," the filing said.
