(Reuters) – A federal judge on Thursday ordered an immigrant mother and daughter brought back to the United States after learning during a court hearing that the government had put them on a deportation flight.

The pair were among 12 plaintiffs in a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) challenging changes in asylum policies ordered by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The article goes on to state the following:

Washington D.C. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan was hearing a request to stay the plaintiffs’ deportations, when the ACLU learned that two of them were already on a flight to Central America, the civil rights group said.

Upon hearing the news, Sullivan ordered their flight returned and suggested that Sessions could be held in contempt of court, according to the ACLU.

A spokesman for the Department of Justice did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“This is pretty outrageous,” Sullivan said, reported The Washington Post. “That someone seeking justice in U.S. court is spirited away while her attorneys are arguing for justice for her? I’m not happy about this at all. This is not acceptable.”

    Don’t be intimidated by an incompetent judge. Keep the mass deportations going. We need to get our country back.

    Seems as though ‘The Holier Than Thou’ judges of this country need a wake up call and put in thier place. Everytime, something goes lawfully in this country we have a judge ‘ruling’ in the lawless favor. I don’t know about anyone else; I have lost all respect for judges and judicial system of our county, is truly a sad day for me to make such a statement. I have no respect for judges, the Supreme Court, the FBI. They have become better criminals then the criminals.

    Illegal is illegal. Federal judges take an oath to obey, uphold, and defend the U.S. Constitution, and the laws ON THE BOOKS, not sway to popular opinion…regardless of the source. Those who don’t wish to do so should step down or be impeached and replaced. If they feel so strongly about this issue they must go through the same processes to change EXISTING laws by writing a bill for consideration before their legislative body instead of trying to make laws from the bench
