Broken system: Deportation backlog now nearly three years for average case:
More than 1.3 million people are currently awaiting deportation decisions in immigration courts, and the average case has been pending for nearly three years, according to new data that sheds light on just how broken the U.S. immigration system has become.
A decade ago just 300,000 cases were pending, and even three years ago it was fewer than 770,000 cases, meaning the government has netted more than 550,000 cases on its docket since 2018, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University.
Jessica Vaughan, policy studies director at the Center for Immigration Studies, said the growth is a sign of just how lax America’s border controls have become, and how immigrants who are in the country illegally have gotten good at exploiting loopholes, demanding lengthy court proceedings when previously they would have quickly been ousted.
“There simply are more people who are allowed to have immigration court hearings instead of being processed in an efficient manner, such as expedited removal or other choices that ICE has,” Ms. Vaughan said. “Frankly, most of these cases don’t belong in immigration court, or if they are, it should be on a rocket docket, because they have no legitimate claim to stay; they are gaming the system.” --->READ MORE HERE

Democrats Block Motion to Quickly Deport Illegal Aliens:
House Democrats blocked a motion Tuesday that would keep a federal government policy to deport illegal aliens quickly.
Rep. Yvette Herrell (R-NM) proposed a motion to block the advancement of the previous question on H. Res. 504. If the House blocked the previous question, the chamber could consider Herrell’s legislation, H.R. 471, the PAUSE Act of 2021. The bill would provide for stringent enforcement of Title 42, a public health order that allows the federal government to quickly expell illegal immigrants who may be spreading communicable diseases. It would prohibit the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Health and Human Services (HHS) from weakening the implementation of Title 42.
Democrats blocked the motion with 214 votes against Herrell’s motion and 195 votes in favor.
Herrell said on the House floor ahead of the vote that the legislation would help curb the migrant crisis unfolding under President Joe Biden’s administration: --->READ MORE HERE
