Article: New Data on Unaccompanied Children in Immigration Court By TRAC

While public attention has been focused on the plight of juveniles arriving at our borders and their growing numbers, unaccompanied children make up a small proportion of those impacted by the current administration's enforcement activities. Although the recorded number of new Immigration Court juvenile cases during the last three months (April - June 2014) has doubled over the previous six months of this fiscal year (October 2013 - March 2014), these cases still make up only 11 percent of the Immigration Court's backlog a total of 41,641 pending juvenile cases out of the total backlog of 375,503 cases. See Table 2 and Figure 1. Table 2. Pending Workload in Immigration Courts* Juvenile Cases 41,641, 11% Other cases 333,862, 89% total 375,503, 100% *as of June, 30, 2014 [Reprinting with permission a TRAC report.]
