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 ACLU lawsuit was filed on behalf of 12 people from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala - three of them children - all who failed their initial "credible fear" interviews, the Post reported.

Migrants must show they have a fear of persecution in their native country based on their race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a "particular social group" - and in the past the latter included victims of domestic violence and other abuse, the Post said. If so, they get that chance; if not, they are quickly removed from the United States, according to the ACLU.
