Immigration judges pushing for independence Say department impedes timely, open operation
By Maria Sacchetti

As of June, the courts had more than 300,000 cases pending, which the judges called a record high, including more than 8,000 in Boston, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. At the same time, immigration judges say they suffer burnout, handling about 1,500 cases each, compared with 440 for federal judges, in life-or-death matters, including immigrants facing deportation to countries where their lives might be in danger.
