He gets to stay... for now

A judge has issued a stay of deportation in the case of Yakub Mohamed stating that "the applicant would face irreparable harm if he was returned''. This is despite the claim by government lawyer
Alison Engel, that Mohamed's family that his family would not be hurt if he was forced to be returned to Somalia. Do you think she sleeps nights?

I've read a little too much this week about how it is routine to separate families during the immigration process, and that there is nothing special about this case. Is the government actually proud of this fact?
