Trump forces judges to speed up deportation proceedings

Government wants magistrates to analyze 700 cases a year



The United States Department of Justice will press immigration judges to accelerate the process of deporting immigrants, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday.
According to the publication, each magistrate must solve at least 700 cases a year to receive a "satisfactory" evaluation and avoid possible sanctions.
With the new measure, Attorney Jeff Sessions' goal is to reduce the number of cases, which are already more than 600,000. The new rule is due to take effect in October.
According to Justice Department spokesman Devin O'Malley, the number of cases to be resolved "does not mean such a big change", as magistrates analyze "up to 1 000 cases" a year.
On Sunday, President Donald Trump said he would not enter into any agreement to legalize the young immigrants known as "Dreamers." The head of state also said that the border with Mexico is increasingly dangerous due to the flow of migrants.
