PBS NewsHour: How a ‘dire’ immigration court backlog affects lives [September 18, 2017]

As lawmakers debate how to deal with immigration reform, little attention is paid to the nation’s immigration court system, which has more than 600,000 cases pending and only 334 judges to hear them. John Yang is joined by Judge Dana Leigh Marks to discuss immigration law and whether the Trump administration's steps to move and hire judges will decrease the growing backlog.

Rapid Response Network - San Francisco

The Rapid Response Network of San Francisco is made up of 21 community based organizations that provide legal and education services to the immigrant community. The primary goal is to provide quick response in the event of any immigration enforcement activity. They have a 24 hour hotline (415-200-1548), do raid verification, and provide legal representation to community members who are victims of these immigration enforcement acts.
