A Calif. judge, the daughter of immigrants, will rule on Trump order

Attorney General Jeff Sessions filed a motion in federal court Thursday to request “limited emergency exemptions” to longstanding rules governing the detention of immigrant children apprehended at the border. The request, a followup of sorts to President Trump’s executive order on family separation, essentially seeks the court’s blessing to suspend compliance with a settlement that limits where ICE can detain immigrants younger than 18 — and for how long.
