SAN DIEGO (AP) — A federal judge on Monday ordered a temporary halt to any deportations of reunited families who were separated by the Trump administration after crossing the southwest border. The American Civil Liberties Union had asked Judge Dana Sabraw to delay deportations a week after reunification. The ACLU said in a court filing that its request is a response to “persistent and increasing rumors … that mass deportations may be carried out imminently and immediately upon reunification.” The ACLU said parents need a week after being reunified with their children to decide whether to pursue asylum. The decision “cannot be made until parents not only have had time to fully discuss the ramifications with their children, but also to hear from the child’s advocate or counsel, who can explain to the parent the likelihood of the child ultimately prevailing in his or her own asylum case if left behind in the U.S. (as well as where the child is likely to end up living),” the ACLU says. Sabraw said he would temporarily halt deportations until the Justice Department could file a response to the ACLU’s documents. He gave the government attorneys one week, and said he’d formally rule after that. Justice attorneys opposed halting the deportations. The request by the ACLU followed a flurry of weekend activity in the case. The judge said late Friday that he was having second thoughts about whether the government was acting in good faith. He was responding to an administration plan to reunite more than 2,500 children ages 5 and older by July 26. The administration’s reunification plan uses “truncated” procedures to verify parentage and perform background checks, excluding DNA testing and other steps it took to reunify children under 5. The administration said the abbreviated vetting puts children at significant safety risk but is needed to meet the deadline. During a hastily scheduled hearing after the plan was released Friday, Sabraw said the government was presenting a “parade of horribles” that misrepresented his orders. He insisted that the deadline be met. “The task is laborious, but can be accomplished in the time and manner prescribed,” he wrote in a subsequent order. Sabraw has scheduled four hearings over the next two weeks, including one Monday, to ensure compliance with his order. Evelyn Stauffer, a spokeswoman for the Health and Human Services Department, said Saturday that the administration proposed its plan “in the interests of transparency and cooperation” after concluding that the abbreviated vetting was necessary to make the deadline. “Within the time the court allows, we will strive to implement the most comprehensive procedures possible to ensure child welfare,” she said. “We look forward to continuing our close work with the court to accomplish the goals we share of safe, expeditious reunification.” (© Copyright 2018 The Associated Press.

Ryan Mayer While some of the future NBA stars are lighting up the court in Las Vegas in Summer League, Milwaukee Bucks forward Jabari Parker chose to take his game to the blacktop and take on some fans in a pickup game. Parker put out a post on Instagram yesterday afternoon of him in his basketball shoes with the address of a local park in Milwaukee. Fans in the area flocked to the court and Parker played in some pick-up games with those that showed up. CBS 58 News was able to talk to Parker and ask him why he chose to come out and shoot some hoops with the community. “My whole neighborhood is St. Francis which I lived in for three years so its pretty much home to me and no better place to me than right off the highway and right by the lake,” said Parker. Local sports anchor Scott Grodsky was able to get some video of Parker playing in the pickup game, which he shared on Twitter last night. Love seeing stuff like this! @JabariParker surprises some local @Bucks fans with a game of pickup. Jabari has always been incredibly active in the Milwaukee community. “I just want to say I love the city, I love Milwaukee and I love the people” pic.twitter.com/nitKUaRK5E — Scott Grodsky (@ScottGrodsky) July 13, 2018 Parker is currently a restricted free agent and the Bucks have extended him the one-year qualifying offer of $4.3 million. Since he is a restricted free agent, the Bucks would have the right to match any offer sheet that Parker is signed to by another team. Last season, he averaged 12.6 points and 4.9 rebounds per game after recovering from a torn ACL.

BEDMINSTER, N.J. (CBSNewYork/CBSNews) — President Donald Trump plans to announce his pick to replace Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy on July 9. Kennedy will retire on July 31 , after more than 30 years on the court. I will be making my choice for Justice of the United States Supreme Court on the first Monday after the July 4th Holiday, July 9th! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 30, 2018 The president originally said he was considering a list of 25 candidates. Now, it’s down to six or seven being interviewed. CBS News has learned that the two leading contenders are D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh and Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Trump is also considering Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amul Thapar, who could become the first Indian American to serve on the Supreme Court. More From CBS News Aboard Air Force One on his way to his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, the president told reporters it would be inappropriate to discuss whether he was looking for a justice who is willing to overturn Roe. V. Wade , the landmark Supreme Court 1973 case that legalized abortion. In an interview with Fox Business Network set to air Sunday, though, Trump said he “probably” would not ask candidates about how they would vote on the case. Two other names that have been floated as front-runners are Third Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Thomas Hardiman, the runner-up to Neil Gorsuch in the president’s first Supreme Court pick, and Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Raymond Kethledge.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – First Lady Melania Trump made another solo trip to the southern border Thursday, as President Donald Trump considers a Supreme Court nominee. The first lady visited a short-term holding center for migrant children in Tucson, Arizona. It was her second trip to the border amid outrage about the president’s now-suspended policy of separating children from their families when they cross the border illegally. Mrs. Trump met face-to-face with those dealing with her husband’s immigration policies firsthand. “I am here to support you and give my help, whatever I can for behalf of children and the families,” she said. During her first stop, the first lady sat down for a roundtable discussion with officials at a U.S. Border Patrol facility, listening to agents describe their daily work. “It hurts to see the children. They don’t really know what’s going on,” said agent Joyce Silva. Following the sit-down, Mrs. Trump toured a short-term holding center for migrant minors. More than 2,300 children have been separated from their parents at the border in recent weeks. Some were placed in government-contracted shelters hundreds of miles away from their parents. Last week, the first lady visited children and federal immigration authorities in Texas one day after the president signed an executive order to halt the separation of families. A spokesperson for Mrs. Trump said the first lady is deeply concerned and eager to see what has changed. Meanwhile, the president was in Wisconsin attending a ceremonial groundbreaking for the Foxconn Technology Group project. “As soon as I’m finished here, I’m going to hop on that plane, I’m going back to Washington and we’re going to pick ourselves one great United States Supreme Court justice,” he said. At a rally Wednesday in North Dakota, Trump made it clear that his next Supreme Court nominee will have an impact on the court for a long time to come. “We have to pick one that’s going to be there for 40 years, 45 years,” he said. The president will pick from a list of 25 candidates to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced he’s retiring after more than 30 years on the bench. Kennedy was known as the court’s swing vote, often siding with conservatives but also joining liberals in several key rulings. Trump is expected to choose someone who will move the court to the right. Democrats, however, are still angry that Republicans blocked former President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee before the 2016 election, on the grounds that voters should have a say on the same deal now. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says this situation is much different and the Senate will vote on Kennedy’s replacement in the fall.
