Democrats who oppose changing the law to allow quicker removals of families and unaccompanied young people illegally crossing the southwestern border into the U.S. often argue that those entering the country illegally are entitled to a "day in court."

Joaquin Castro before a White House meeting this week. Young people should be given "a meaningful day in court to protect their rights under our laws," added Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez.
