Comment: Immigration Hearings Delayed
The Wall Street Journal reports that the Justice Department is delaying thousands of immigration hearings by nearly five years.

The delay makes room for higher-priority cases caused last summer by a surge in unaccompanied minors and families crossing the border with Mexico. The Justice Department began notifying employees in the immigration court system last week that nonpriority cases were being bumped off the court docket and would get a Nov. 29, 2019, court date.
