Rep looks to unclog immigration courts

With over a million cases waiting to be heard in immigration courts, Wisconsin Rep. Mike Gallagher is looking to do something about it. Late last month, Gallagher introduced the Empowering Immigration Courts Act, which would allow judges to impose criminal fines on anyone found in contempt.  He believes that while much of the political debate is focused on the wall and border security, not enough attention is being put on the strain felt by immigration courts.

Gallagher says passing the bill would not only give judges the tools other courts do but also prevent people with legitimate asylum claims from getting crowded out.
