From Fox News:
The Justice Department is reportedly sending 50 judges to immigration detention centers across the U.S. to hear more cases and cut down on the massive backlog of immigration cases.
Court will be in session from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., two sources told Reuters.
Judges will be asked to volunteer for one or two month deployments at detention centers. If the amount of volunteers is inadequate, the department would assign judges, Reuters reported.
Immigration courts have a backlog of more than 550,000 cases, according to the Justice Department.
The judges will be sent to detention centers in Adelanto, Calf., San Diego and Chicago, Reuters reported, citing a letter from the DOJ to judges.BBC updated the Fox report:
Mr Trump's executive order directed the secretary for homeland security to expand capacity and end the policy known as "catch and release", whereby immigrants held after crossing the border illegally are freed pending court hearings.
Now the Department of Justice has confirmed that a letter was sent requesting the deployment of extra judges. They will work from detention centres to speed up the process of determining whether asylum is granted or deportation orders should be issued.That is how a businessman does things.
A career politician thinks in terms of a 9-to-5, five-day week with 18 paid holidays a year.
President Trump has been to McDonald's. It opens before 9, closes after 5, and is open seven days a week taking only Thanksgiving and Christmas off. Some are open 24 hours a day.
Tudor's in Nitro is. (Gotta plug my main source of cholesterol.)
Under President Trump, the immigration deportation courts will be open 16 hours a day -- twice as long for the convenience of 550,000 people awaiting their fate.
Justice delayed is justice denied.
Unlike Obama, President Trump is on the side of justice because not all of those 550,000 people will be deported. They will get their chance in court to make a case to stay. The only thing new is they will get their chance to make their case sooner.
Yep, President Trump stands for truth, justice, and the American way.
