Sessions Directs Prosecutors to Focus on Immigration Crimes
By Dean DeChiaro

President Donald Trump proposed an increase in funding for fiscal 2018 that would bring the total roster of immigration judges to 449. DOJ swore in 12 new judges in February, bringing the current total to more than 300 active judges. There are more than 500,000 cases in the immigration court backlog, according to Syracuse Universitys Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse.
