Yuma Sector stopping Op. Streamline cases for some illegal immigrants
By Paul Ingram

In Arizona alone, there are more than 14,000 cases jammed up in the state's four courts, taking an average of 680 days to close, according to data from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a nonpartisan research project supported by Syracuse University. Nationally, there are more than 400,000 cases pending in immigration court. Immigration judges have ordered 82,878 people deported this year, according to TRAC, but in only one out of every five cases did the government seek a removal order because of criminal activity or a threat to public safety. In Arizona, this amounted to around 1,100 cases.
