Congress Funds 55 New Immigration Judge Teams—Extensive Backlog Requires More
By Shaw Drake

The U.S. immigration court system is in dire straits. The most recent Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) numbers show a staggering half-million pending cases before U.S. Immigration courts, resulting in an all-time high of 635-day average wait time for adjudication. TRAC also notes, “the projected total time from the date their case was filed until their hearing date is scheduled is now 1,071 days—or just under three years (35.2 months).”
