Clogged Courts

Because of a backlog of cases and too few judges, many migrant children are able to stay in the U.S. for years before being deported or granted asylum. The Wall Street Journal reports that in FY2013, immigration judges deported 3,535 children and allowed another 888 to return home voluntarily, but those numbers are nothing compared to the tens of thousands of juveniles apprehended by the border patrol each year.
