Advocates: Fast-track immigration courts costly, ineffective
By Paul Ingram

In April 2016, the top ranked lead charge for federal immigration prosecutions was illegal re-entry, according to data from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a nonpartisan research project supported by Syracuse University. Before the program was implemented, most immigration cases were handled within the civil immigration system. Between 2000 and 2013, the federal government opened 13 new privately operated prisons to deal with the influx of new convicts, said the report.
