Trump and immigrants: Wide fear of deportations in Bay Area, but how will it work?
By Thomas Peele and Tatiana Sanchez

California leads the country in immigration court cases, followed by Texas. People facing deportation in cases originating anywhere between Bakersfield and Oregon end up at two small federal court facilities in San Francisco’s financial district where about 20 judges decide what happens to potential deportees. Combined with Immigration Courts in Southern California, there is a backlog of 96,000 cases in the state, which is about 18 percent of all cases nationally, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University.
