Challenges Straining the Immigration Court System

How asylum cases are currently handled.

The recent influx of asylum seekers comes as the immigration court system is already experiencing severe backlogs. To discuss some of the challenges straining the judicial system, Arizona Daily Star border and immigration reporter Perla Trevizo and University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law professor Shefali MIlczarek-Desai joined Lorraine Rivera in the Arizona 360 studio.
