Immigration judges urge Congress to fix record-high caseload backlog
By Laurie Liles and Brittany Bade

WASHINGTON - Congress needs to double the number of immigration judges and reorganize the immigration court system to cope with a record-high 375,000 backlogged cases, two of those judges said Wednesday. Judges Dana Leigh Marks and Denise Noonan Slavin said a fix "wouldn't be cheap," but that action must be taken to relieve the logjam of cases - including 15,000 in Arizona's four immigration courts, according to government data compiled by Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse.
