Immigrant Justice is a revolving door in Pittsburgh
By Rich Lord

The U.S. Sentencing Commission has reported that in 2011, immigration cases made up 35 percent of all federal criminal sentencings -- the largest category, with drugs coming in second at 29 percent. Statistics assembled by Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, which monitors the federal justice system, indicate that around four-fifths of the immigration cases filed are for illegal re-entry.
