Crackdown on immigrants takes a toll on federal judge: 'I have presided over a process that destroys families'
By Lauren Villagran


No other federal criminal court judge comes near Brack's sentencing record. In the five years through 2017, Brack ranked first among 680 judges nationwide for his caseload, according to Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, which tracks court data. He sentenced 6,858 offenders 5,823 of them for felony immigration violations. It's a dubious honor for a man who is a devout Catholic and makes plain his moral dilemma in public hearings. He takes seriously his oath to uphold the laws of the United States. But he is a cog in a system he believes is unjust.
