ED HENRY: “Breaking tonight, a Justice Department official has just confirmed to Fox News they are now, within the Trump administration, instituting quotas for federal immigration judges to try and speed up deportations of illegal immigrants out of this country. It comes after the union for these judges had a prohibition in place that did not allow these quotas. The quotas have now been lifted, officials saying, quote, “These performance metrics, which were agreed to by the immigration judge union that is now condemning them, are designed to increase productivity and efficiency in the system without compromising due process.”
