Rise in Immigration Priority Cases Causing Delays

The number of priority cases in U.S. immigration courts is growing, causing a backlog on other cases that have been filed before them. Those priority cases include immigration hearings for women with children, unaccompanied children and people who are being detained for the first time. A report from Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse shows the backlog is now over 500,000 cases.
