U.S. to put child migrants on fast track in deportation hearings: official

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/09/2014 - 03:25
By Julia Edwards WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States plans to give priority to child migrants over adults in deportation hearings as part of a broader initiative to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors crossing the border illegally, a Justice Department official told Reuters. The new policy, to be announced by the Justice Department on Wednesday, is one of several steps the administration is taking to accelerate the removal of tens of thousands of child migrants entering the United States, many from Central America. The official gave few details of how quickly the "removal" hearings would proceed, but the White House asked Congress on Tuesday for $45 million to hire 40 judges to address backlogs in courts that mean deportation hearings often take more than 18 months. Immigration courts typically prioritize immigrants held in detention for hearings, but under U.S. law, children are not detained.
