(Before It's News)

President Donald Trump is trying to keep his promise of deporting illegal aliens.

There’s an enormous backlog of cases pending deportation.

So Trump is working on changes to speed up the process.

The Department of Justice is deploying 50 judges to immigration detention facilities across the United States, according to two sources and a letter seen by Reuters and sent to judges on Thursday.

The department is also considering asking judges to sit from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., split between two rotating shifts, to adjudicate more cases, the sources said. A notice about shift times was not included in the letter.

Previously ‘expedited deportation proceedings’ only could be applied to those who had been in the Unites States under 2 weeks.

Now, instead of applying the expedited process to just those here up to two weeks, the process can be applied to those here up to two years.

That will go a long way to getting rid of the backlog of cases.

Moreover, ‘catch and release’ is now dead.

The order called for the end of a policy known as “catch and release,” by which immigrants were released from detention and given a date to appear in court. Immigration courts have a backlog of over 550,000 cases, according to the Justice Department’s data, so many court dates are set years into the future.
That resulted in people just leaving and never coming back.
