Immigration Court Backlogs Grow
By Elise Foley

Immigration courts are too slow to keep up with the high number of undocumented immigrants detected by enforcement agencies, despite a number of new judge hirings, according to a report by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. Although the Executive Office for Immigration Review recently hired 44 judges, the number of cases awaiting resolution were at an all-time high of 275,316 in May 2011, according to the report of government data from Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, which is part of Syracuse University.
