The Los Angeles Times reports the LA Immigration Court is overwhelmed.
In Oklahoma, Immigration and Customs Enforcement removes approximately 180-300 aliens per month. And, not surprisingly, our local Immigration Court faces the same issues as the one in Los Angeles. These issues include a soaring case load and long waits for hearing dates. Those with good faith applications for relief from removal find themselves waiting for a year for a resolution of their cases. Normally, the wait is to the advantage of the foreign national.
