500,000 Backlogged Immigration Cases And Growing

500,000 Backlogged Immigration Cases And Growing | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"Attorney General Jeff Sessions trumpets the Trump Administration’s deportation policies, but the enduring lack of immigration judges around the country has taken hold of the court system."

Carlos Batara's curator insight, July 15, 9:41 PM

 

Changes do not happen in a vacuum.  The issue is how many secondary changes are created as a result of primary changes.

 

For instance, under the Obama Administration, spending on law enforcement, detention, and deportation increased.  

 

The result?

 

More immigration court cases.

 

And that means?

 

The need for more immigration judges.

 

In 2008 there were 167,000 pending deportation defense cases.

 

According to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University, there are now 560,000 cases at immigration courts.

 

Yet, there are only 300 judges.  The backlog, as one might expect, is staggering.

 

Of course, the immigration court system has long been the forgotten step-child of immigration reform.

 

Today, with immigration reform nowhere in site under the Trump Administration, and detentions at an all time high, one should expect the situation at immigration court to worsen.

Bernie Sanders on Resisting Trump, Why the Democratic Party is an "Absolute Failure" & More | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
Last month more than 4,000 people gathered in Chicago for the People’s Summit. Independent senator, former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders delivered the keynote speech. During his speech, he repeatedly criticized the Democratic Party, calling it an "absolute failure," and blaming it for the election of President Trump. "I’m often asked by the media and others: How did it come about that Donald Trump, the most unpopular presidential candidate in the modern history of our country, won the election?" Sanders said. "And my answer is that Trump didn’t win the election; the Democratic Party lost the election. Let us be very, very clear: The current model and the current strategy of the Democratic Party is an absolute failure."

In Precedent-Setting Trial, Lawyers Say Arizona's Ethnic Studies Ban is Discriminatory & Illegal

In Precedent-Setting Trial, Lawyers Say Arizona's Ethnic Studies Ban is Discriminatory & Illegal | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
We go to Arizona, where a hearing is underway that will decide whether a ban on ethnic studies which eliminated the Mexican-American studies program in Tucson schools is unconstitutional. In 2010, Arizona passed a controversial law banning the teaching of any class designed for a particular ethnic group that would "promote resentment toward a race or class of people." Following the passage of the bill, then-Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal ruled in 2011 that the Mexican-American studies program violated the state law, despite an independent auditor’s finding showing otherwise. The Tucson Unified School District ultimately suspended the acclaimed Mexican-American studies program in 2012 under the threat of losing up to $14 million of funding if they allowed it to continue. We are joined by Richard Martinez, one of the attorneys representing the families challenging the law.

FIRST Global | International robotics challenge to ignite a passion for  STEM | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
FIRST Global organizes a yearly international robotics challenge to ignite a passion for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) among the more than two billion youths across the world.

 

The not-for-profit public charity provides the framework for an “olympics”-style robotics challenge where one team from every nation is invited to participate in a global robotics event that builds bridges between high school students with different backgrounds, languages, religions, and customs.

 

By bringing these future STEM leaders together in an engaging and collaborative competition that drives home the importance, excitement, and applicability of STEM education, FIRST Global inspires students to learn the skills they will need to make the discoveries their parents and grandparents would consider miracles, impossibilities, or just plain science fiction.
