Justice Department places new pressure on immigrants facing deportation Immigrants fighting deportation generally have a chance to make their case in court, where they can ask a judge to allow them to stay in the US by arguing they qualify for asylum or another legal option. This year, as the coronavirus pandemic gripped the US, the nation's immigration court system -- which is operated by the Justice Department -- partially shut down, leading to the postponement of hearings and fueling the growing backlog already facing the system. As of August 2020, the current active court case backlog grew to around 1.2 million, up 11% from the start of March, according to Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, which tracks immigration court data. But as of late, despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, immigration attorneys have begun to see a slate of orders requesting that their clients file applications requesting relief from deportation within around five to six weeks.

Barr on Monday gave federal prosecutors the green light to pursue "substantial allegations" of voting irregularities before the results of the 2020 presidential election, which Fox News has projected Democrat Joe Biden has won, are certified next month, even though little evidence of fraud has been put forth. "Attorney General Barr’s memo is both flawed and deeply disturbing," Nadler, D -N.Y., said in a statement on Tuesday.
