Lawyers for U.K. President Donald Trump say the United States should not be allowed to use the United Kingdom’s law to deport its own citizens and could even face a civil lawsuit.
In a case filed in the British High Court in London on Monday, Trump’s lawyers are asking a judge to block a deportation order issued in December by British authorities, which called for the deportation of three British citizens and a British man.
The lawyers argued that the U.N. Convention Against Torture, which forbids torture, is not binding on Canada.
U.k. officials have said the men had been tortured and that there was no evidence of a physical threat to them.
Canada has rejected the request for a restraining order, saying it has jurisdiction over U.ks. border and is the only jurisdiction with jurisdiction over the border, even though the U,S.
and the British territories of Newfoundland and Labrador have overlapping borders.
The case is the latest to raise questions about whether the Trump administration’s deportation plans will have an impact on British immigration law.
Trump has been under pressure to deport tens of thousands of people who came to the U-S.
as children or who came from countries that are not parties to the convention.
In September, the Trump White House announced that it had revoked the visa of a woman who had been deported from Canada under the Obama administration.
Trump’s lawyers also argued in the case that Canada’s extradition treaty with the U.-K.
provides a legal basis for Canada to deport the three Britons.
British officials have defended their extradition process by pointing to U.s.
Supreme Court rulings that have ruled that extradition can take place only after a criminal trial.
In January, the U!
government also filed an extradition application for the man who was deported.
U.S., Canadian, and European governments have all raised concerns about the U s extradition laws.
