Correction: Immigration Overload story
By Alicia Caldwell


WASHINGTON (AP) In a story June 25 about the flood of immigrant children traveling alone caught crossing the Mexican border illegally, The Associated Press reported erroneously that the federal immigration court system has a backlog of more than 30,000 cases. The actual backlog is greater than 360,000 pending cases, according to federal records analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a research organization at Syracuse University. The incorrect figure also appeared in an earlier story published June 22 and June 23, slugged "Immigrant Children."
