Immigration courts are speeding up hearings for the tens of thousands of Central American children caught on the U. S. border after criticism that the backlogged system is letting immigrants stay in the country for years while waiting for their cases to be heard.
Immigration lawyers have long sought a speedier process to prevent immigrants from having to wait years for an answer on their asylum or green card applications.
The biggest worry is that children might not receive proper notice of hearings, and could wind up getting a deportation order if they fail to show up, immigration lawyers said.
Immigration Judge Dana Leigh Marks, who heads the association of immigration judges, said the key is to ensure enough time is allotted to give the cases proper attention.
Once-forgotten plaques placed by a Portland police officer in a city park to honor five Nazi-era German soldiers have come back to haunt the city.
The officer, Capt. Mark Kruger, threatened to sue the city last year over texts sent by a top police official to an officer characterizing him as a Nazi sympathizer.
A small cluster of protesters last weekend admonished both Mayor Charlie Hales and the Portland Police Bureau, with organizers calling the settlement an "injustice, and a celebration of white supremacy."
The Oregonian detailed the city's dealings with Kruger in a series of stories that culminated with the police chief suspending Kruger and forcing him to take a tolerance training session.
Three years later, a police lieutenant complained that Kruger created a hostile work environment when she was promoted to his department — something that she said was made more difficult because she had played a role in the 2010 investigation into his conduct.
