Pending deportation cases hit all-time high in Utah
By Lee Davidson


Utah had 1,167 deportation cases pending as of mid-June, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University in New York, which tracks such information nationwide. That was up from 1,061 in Utah the previous fiscal year, which was also the previous record. The number of cases pending this year is 11 times higher than the 103 cases that were pending in 2002. The numbers have generally consistently increased since then. TRAC reported that the average wait time for resolution of Utah cases now is 471 days, up from 455 days last year but down from the record high of 544 days in 2005. TRAC reported that people from 81 different nations were awaiting decisions on deportation in Utah
