 An Obama administration efforts to cut down on swelling number of deportation cases has been less than successful,  the Washington Post reports.

An internal review found that more deportation cases are cropping up at a quicker pace than the administration has time to handle.

The idea is to close deportation cases of primarily young, old and pregnant immigrants who have no significant criminal histories, according to the Post. Although they won’t be granted visas, some will be able to obtain work permits.

But the process of closing cases is taking longer than expected, the Post reported.
