Immigration Reform News 2014: Government Shutdown Delayed 37,000 Immigration Court Cases
By Selena Hill

Immigration judges can grant asylum, green cards and other forms of relief. They also determine if someone should be deported for breaking the country's immigration laws. However, rescheduling cancelled hearing dates is a long and tedious process. Think Progress reports that it took an average of 562 days to process one immigration case in 2013. By January, more than 360,000 immigration court cases were pending for an average of 573 days, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University
