Looks like the Trump Administration is stepping up and shifting some immigration judges around to needed areas.

Some big cities will be getting additional judges to help reduce the massive backlogs in deportation orders.

Mostly targeting criminals.

This is "according to two administration officials"

Immigration judges headed to 12 U.S. cities to speed deportations

The U.S. Justice Department is developing plans to temporarily reassign immigration judges from around the country to 12 cities to speed up deportations of illegal immigrants who have been charged with crimes, according to two administration officials.

How many judges will be reassigned and when they will be sent is still under review, according to the officials, but the Justice Department has begun soliciting volunteers for deployment.

The targeted cities are New York; Los Angeles; Miami; New Orleans; San Francisco; Baltimore, Bloomington, Minnesota; El Paso, Texas; Harlingen, Texas; Imperial, California; Omaha, Nebraska and Phoenix, Arizona. They were chosen because they are cities which have high populations of illegal immigrants with criminal charges, the officials said.

Under an executive order signed by Trump in January, illegal immigrants with pending criminal cases are regarded as priorities for deportation whether they have been found guilty or not.

I thought the biggest cities told all the criminals that they could come there..and they would be safe and protected. I know Rahm Emanuel did, here in Chicago.

This is the source site,

uk.reuters.com...

It seems the request was from the DHS,
An extract,
" The Department of Homeland Security asked for the judges' reshuffle, an unusual move given that immigration courts are administered by the Department of Justice*. A Homeland Security spokeswoman declined to comment on any plan that has not yet been finalised." It looks like more top end messing without considered thought.

*Starting Monday??
