Kozachik criticizes Guatemalan consulate over migrant crisis
By Paul Ingram

Each person released by ICE has an order to appear at a nearby immigration court within 15 days and must then argue for some kind of relief from removal orders or they will be deported. Relief is often difficult to obtain. Data from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse projects that U.S. immigration judges will give relief to 15 percent fewer people this year, even as the number of people asking for relief has increased significantly. TRAC also notes that the wait time for pending cases is now 587 days as more than 375,000 cases are currently backlogged in the system.
