Bob Marshall asks governor to recruit judges to help with border crisis

bob marshallBob Marshall, being Bob Marshall, wants Gov. Terry McAuliffe to use state resources to assist in the resolution to the border crisis.

“Unfortunately, the immigration system is overwhelmed,” said Marshall, a Northern Virginia Republican state delegate, who sent a letter to McAuliffe asking him to identify Virginia citizens such as former or substitute judges who could be appointed to assist immigration hearing officers.

“Because all illegal aliens coming into the U.S. from countries other than Mexico and Canada are required to have an administrative hearing prior to deportation proceedings, it is imperative that we get a system in place to assist the federal government with these hearings so we don’t end up with a de facto legal status for these individuals simply due to delays,” said Marshall, adding that he is “hopeful that timely processing of these cases will be a deterrent for others considering violating our immigration laws.”
