How a ‘dire’ immigration court backlog affects lives

  • Aired: 09/18/2017
  • 06:38
  • Rating: NR
As lawmakers debate how to deal with immigration reform, little attention is paid to the nation’s immigration court system, which has more than 600,000 cases pending and only 334 judges to hear them. John Yang is joined by Judge Dana Leigh Marks to discuss immigration law and whether the Trump administration's steps to move and hire judges will decrease the growing backlog.
