Extended trial delays put immigrants in long limbo
By Lomi Kriel

In Texas alone, cases are delayed an average of 439 days in immigration courts, a record-long wait and increase of nearly 250 percent from a decade ago, according to data collected through March by Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. Houston's downtown immigration court has the longest lag in the state after El Paso with 541 days. Nationwide, it's an average 578-day wait.
