The United States judicial system is buckling under the pressure of illegal immigration throughout the country; facing backlogs of over one million immigration cases and delaying deportation orders across America.
The staggering statistics were released Tuesday by the director of the Executive Office for Immigration Review, claiming new data shows “immigration judges have been completing fewer and fewer cases.”

The organization adds that the “backlog” could takes years to clear and would require direct clarifications and legal guidelines from the federal government and elected officials. One solution -according to the EOIR- would be to “digitize” files to allow judges a speedier review process.
