(WASHINGTON) — A federal judge on Thursday halted a deportation in progress and threatened to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt if the mother and daughter weren’t returned to the U.S.

U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan of Washington learned in court that the two plaintiffs in a lawsuit before him were being removed from the United States and confirmed later that they were on a plane headed to Central America. He said any delay in bringing them back would be intolerable.

If they fail to comply, 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 Department of Homeland Security was bringing the pair back to the United States on Thursday after the plane landed in El Salvador. The mother and daughter did not disembark in the Central American country.

“This is pretty outrageous,” Sullivan said in court, according to The Washington Post. “That someone seeking justice in U.S. court is spirited away while her attorneys are arguing for justice for her?

1. Be interesting to see where the problem turns out to be

I don't see DOJ trying to pull a fast one so much as not having adequate comms.

3. It was grand standing by the judge, but they do that from time to time

Closest thing to God on earth is not the Pope or the LDS Prophet but a judge in his court room.

12. Sessions should have stuck to his guns.

SCOTUS has already smacked down the federal district courts for usurping the immigration powers of the Executive branch of our Republic.

I really do look forward to the SCOTUS ruling on this and Thomas' bitch-slap of these activist liberal judges.

13. I think it was most likely unintentional

She had a date in the system that did not get suspended due to the court action.
