Maryland immigration courts rank fifth in the country when measuring all pending cases involving unaccompanied children, according to a new report. There are 3,949 such cases pending in the Baltimore court, according to the latest data analyzed by Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC). Unaccompanied children are represented by an attorney in about one-third of the total 63,721 cases that were pending in Immigration Court as of Oct. 31, according to the group. In Baltimore, about 27 percent of children are represented by an attorney. Half of all pending cases involving unaccompanied children were being handled in six of the country's more than 50 Immigration Courts. Among these, New York City had the most cases, followed by Houston; Arlington, Virginia; Los Angeles; Baltimore; and San Francisco.
