Worthy Christian News » Backlog of 360,000 Cases in Immigration Courts; 'Illegal Kids May Wait Years Before Hearing'

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Worthy News)– Since October, over 52,000 illegal immigrant children have been apprehended by Border Patrol agents. While all children face deportation, it will take years before any action will be taken since federal immigration courts face a backlog of more than 360,000 cases, the Associated Press reported.

The surge of children has prompted the Homeland Security Department to start flying some of the immigrants to Arizona for processing. Military bases in Texas, California and Oklahoma are also being used or readied to house children until they can be placed with relatives or sponsors. All the child immigrants face deportation, but with a backlog of more than 360,000 pending cases in federal immigration courts it will likely take years before a judge will order many of the children out.

Last week the Obama administration announced plans to open additional detention centers for families. The first will be at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico, home of the Border Patrol's training academy. — Source

    Anyone who cannot show proof of legal residence should be forced to await their day in immigration court by returning to their own country where they are legal residents. They can come back for their court date. Illegal workers definitely should not be allowed to continue their crimes by continuing to work the illegally obtained jobs. Alleged thieves are not allowed to hang on to their loot while awaiting their day in court, illegal workers should be treated exactly the same. Alleged drug dealers do not get to hold on to their cocaine or heroin until their day in court and alleged illegal workers should not be allowed to hold onto the illegally obtained jobs until their day in court.

    That is a logical and reasonable approach to the problem and would eliminate the problem of over crowding the facilities and courts. That and mandatory E-Verify for all employers is the kind of reform we need.
