Sarah Fabian Biography
Sarah Fabian, senior litigation counsel for the Department of Justice, told a three judge-panel at the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco the agreement doesn’t list items that must be provided in border facilities.
Her name is Sarah Fabian.
Tell her what you think…
A U.S. government lawyer on Tuesday said a longstanding settlement agreement requiring sanitary conditions for detained immigrant children may not necessarily mean a toothbrush and soap must be provided for shorter stays.
“This week, a team of lawyers interviewed more than fifty children at one of those facilities, in Clint, Texas, in order to monitor government compliance with the Flores settlement” https://t.co/XFF3VLEQP3

“There’s fair reason to find those things may be part of safe and sanitary,” she told the panel of 3 Judges Wallace Tashima, William Fletcher, and Marsha Berzonduring, an exchange over the conditions in facilities for immigrant children caught crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.
Her name is Sarah Fabian & since before Trump, her primary practice area is defending the torture of children in ICE custody. She was also the one who asked to postpone reunions of separated parents & children so she could fly home to dog-sit for the weekend. #DisbarSarahFabian https://t.co/8H41DJr4sp

One of the judges then asked whether there could be an instance when a person didn’t need a toothbrush and soap for days. She said possibly for shorter term stays.
Consider all the people who are defending Sarah Fabian because she’s “just doing her job,” as if she doesn’t have free will.
The hearing focused on the U.S. government’s appeal of a federal judge’s 2017 ruling that U.S. authorities breached the agreement after young immigrants caught on the border said they had to sleep in cold, overcrowded cells and were given inadequate food and dirty water.
All regimes require co-conspirators who make the monstrous systems work.
Sarah Fabian is one of those co-conspirators. She’s a white supremacist.
I’ve seen her name in dozens of reports over the past year arguing against basic human rights for kids.

In its appeal, the Department contends the judge’s order is imposing “new substantive requirements” for the detention of immigrant children that aren’t laid out in the 1997 settlement. Advocates disagreed, saying the agreement requires youth be held in “safe and sanitary” facilities, which should include basic hygiene items and sufficient food and water.
This DOJ’s lawyer’s name is Sarah Fabian. She is arguing that detained children don’t need soap or toothpaste. The judges are stunned.
During the hearing, Fabian said the agreement was vague about what is required to determine a facility is safe and sanitary.
Immigrant advocate Peter Schey provided dictionary definitions for the terms and noted problems in Customs and Border Protection facilities have persisted since the ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Dolly Gee, who has since appointed an independent monitor to evaluate conditions.
The issues date back years but mirror more recent allegations about the facilities amid a rise in the number of children and families, mostly from Central America, arriving on the southwest border. Five children have died since late last year after being detained by the Border Patrol and a 17-year-old Guatemalan girl was found last week in a wheelchair with her premature baby at a border facility.
Department of Justice attorney Sarah Fabian is coming under fire for her arguments on what constitutes safe and sanitary conditions in migrant detention centers. https://t.co/5gsoflLje6

The settlement between advocates for young immigrants and the U.S. government says children should be held in facilities that meet certain standards and released as soon as is reasonably possible, which has been considered to be about 20 days.
