Immigration courts add 23 judges
By Elise Foley

Vacancies mean longer wait times for hearings and more time in detention centers — plus shorter hearings ina system that already is considered assembly-line justice. Immigration judges had about 70 minutes per case,the shortest time on record from 1998 to the present, according to a March study from Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. In some cases, this means considering multiple cases at the same time, including mass hearings of up to 80 people.
