Immigration judges are burning out faster than prison wardens and hospital doctors
By Rachel Glickhouse

Across the United States, tens of thousands of immigrants are facing years of waiting for their day in court. With court staff in short supply and enforcement on the rise, there are close to half a million cases pending nationwide, according to the latest data from Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC). But there are only 250 immigration judges in the US, and this year, 100 judges are up for retirement.
