To deal with torrents of Central American children and families flooding the nation’s border with Mexico, President Obama wants to hire 40 new immigration judges. However, that may not bring enough help and may not be timely, said the president of the National Association of Immigration Judges.
“Clearly, what President Obama has requested is an excellent first step. That said, we are very concerned that it will not be sufficient to deal with the long-term scarcity of resources that the immigration courts have had to deal with, coupled with the current surge,” Dana Leigh Marks of the San Francisco immigration court told KPBS radio news.
