Immigration: Why the Pressure Is Off the GOP
By Eric Planin

According to the Economic Policy Institute in Washington, most unaccompanied children crossing the border are designated for deportation once they come before a judge. However, the wait for a hearing in immigration court often lasts many months or even years. As of April, there was a record high of 445,607 new cases awaiting disposition in the immigration court system, according to Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC). That was far more than twice the number of pending cases in 2008.
