Fewer border kids traveling to Nebraska, but they’re still coming
By Deena Winter

Nebraska’s immigration court system has the second longest wait time in the nation. The average time people wait for a hearing where a judge decides whether they are deported is 821 days, eclipsing the national average of 611 days. That trails only Colorado, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a nonprofit watchdog at Syracuse University. Nebraska’s wait times have been on the rise since 2009, more than doubling. The number of backlogged cases has hovered around 5,000 in recent years.
