    first and fast

    From VOA news:
    "But no changes are expected soon, since the U.S. government has delayed action on immigration reform until after November's midterm election
    So for now, the rocket docket propels the cases-pushing kids through first and fast. "
    What does " first and fast' mean here?
    thank you.

    Re: first and fast

    It means that cases of children in the US illegally will be handled quickly (fast) by the courts and before those of adults (first.)
