Deportation review begins in Bay Area immigration court
By Matt O'Brien

Prosecutorial discretion -- first announced last June -- has not much reduced the national backlog of more than 300,000 deportation cases, according to a public records group at Syracuse University. "The hope was this was going to speed the cases and bring down the backlog," said Susan Long, co-director of Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. "We haven't seen that, but maybe we're expecting too much in the short term."
