A video feed links people in the Immigration and Customs Enforcement building in Pittsburgh's South Side to Honeyman and other judges in Philadelphia.

The Pittsburgh satellite court serves roughly the western third of Pennsylvania, from Erie to the West Virginia border. Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and York are among 59 courts in which judges deal with more than 52,000 undocumented juveniles who have crossed the Mexican border since January.

Many came from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, seeking to escape deadly crime by narcotics cartels or to take advantage of a law written under the Bush administration to deal with human trafficking and expanded in October by the Obama administration to allow children with relatives legally in the United States to come here.

The scumbag “immigration lawyers” are going to make a killing off of this fiasco with the so called “immigration courts”. Taxpayer dollars being used to make sure the illegal alien invaders get to stay in America and finish the job they came here to do. More payback from the Kenyan for a “job well done” in 2008 and 2012.
