(NationalSentinel) Immigration: In order to begin clearing the backlog of deportation cases facing U.S. immigration courts, the Department of Justice is dispatching a phalanx of immigration judges to a dozen cities around the country.
As reported by Breitbart, the full plan has yet to be unveiled and for now, DoJ is looking for volunteers among immigration judges to fill the roster:
Cities the DOJ want to staff up includes New York; Los Angeles; Miami; New Orleans; San Francisco; Baltimore, Bloomington, Minnesota; El Paso, Texas; Harlingen, Texas; Imperial, California; Omaha, Nebraska, and Phoenix, Arizona, the news service says.

This isn’t the first move to beef up immigration judge staff. Early in March the Trump administration also began sending judges to immigrant detention centers to speed up services.
The initial plan came on the heels of a Department of Homeland Security memo that requested the Trump administration allow federal immigration courts to use “expedited deportation proceedings” for any illegal immigrants living in the U.S. for two years or less. The process is currently limited to those only living in the U.S. for up to two weeks.
Voters handed Trump a major electoral victory in November in large part due to his pledge to enforce immigration laws and deport people in the country illegally. A recent CNN poll seems to suggest the opposite – that most Americans are now not on Trump’s side when it comes to immigration policy.
Whom do you believe – CNN or the November election results?
