The Social Security Administration will transfer more than 15 percent of its disability appeals cases from its Baltimore office to other cities in an effort to relieve what has become the third-worst processing delay in the nation, the agency said Friday. About 1,800 disability appeals cases from Central Maryland will now be heard by administrative law judges in Virginia, easing a backlog in Baltimore that has required claimants to wait 17 months on average to have their cases considered.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake - who has gained a national reputation for welcoming Hispanic families to Baltimore - joined a growing chorus of Maryland officials Tuesday raising concerns over a proposal to turn a vacant office building in the city into a shelter for immigrant children largely from Central America. Rawlings-Blake said she has "serious concerns" about an idea being explored by the Obama administration to retrofit the massive office complex on North Greene Street known as Metro West to help contain a recent surge in unaccompanied children who are crossing the border illegally.

Latinos have for years made up one of the largest and fastest-growing groups in the country. They have also long been one of the most underrepresented minority groups in the federal workplace. Now a new effort is underway - at the highest level of federal hiring - to address that disparity. "There is tremendous growth, as you know, in the Latino community, and we see more and more young people graduating from university, and I really want to tap into those numbers," said Katherine Archuleta, the director of the federal Office of Personnel Management.

Federal officials are eying a large, vacant office building near Lexington Market on Baltimore's west side as a potential shelter for children caught entering the country illegally, an idea that met with resistance from several Maryland lawmakers on Monday. The children, most of whom are from Central America, are part of a surge of immigrants that has overwhelmed holding facilities along the Southwest border in recent weeks and forced the Obama administration into a frantic search to find shelter space elsewhere.
