The Biden administration has opened up a fast lane for illegal immigrants.
The Department of Justice and Homeland Security announced Friday that it will be creating what is called a Dedicated Docket program that is designed to reduce the time illegal immigrant families have to wait to have their cases heard before an immigration judge, according to a Department of Justice news release.
The release frames the project as targeting “families who arrive between ports of entry at the Southwest Border,” without any reference to their illegal status.
“Families arriving at the border who are placed in immigration proceedings should have their cases decided in an orderly, efficient, and fair manner,” said Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas.
“Families who have recently arrived should not languish in a multi-year backlog; today’s announcement is an important step for both justice and border security,” he said.
