Trump administration officials said Monday they will impose quotas on federal immigration judges in an attempt to speed up deportations, Fox News has confirmed.
A Justice Department official speaking to Fox News cited enormous court backlogs. “These performance metrics… are designed to increase productivity and efficiency in the system without compromising due process.”
Meantime, President Trump lamented the sluggishness of the deportation process on Monday night.
As ridiculous as it sounds, the laws of our country do not easily allow us to send those crossing our Southern Border back where they came from. A whole big wasted procedure must take place. Mexico & Canada have tough immigration laws, whereas ours are an Obama joke. ACT CONGRESS
