Immigration Cases Increase in Memphis
By Kristin Leigh

Data show an increase in immigration cases this year in Memphis. Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, or TRAC, compiles data from the Executive Office for Immigration Review. The data show an increase in immigration cases in Memphis every year since 2006, but the number is higher than average this year. Between 2010 and 2016, there was an average annual increase of about 1,000 immigration cases in Memphis. In less than four months in 2017, the number of new cases in Memphis has nearly surpassed the annual average, with 958 new cases. Federal Immigration Court Judges in Memphis hear cases of families in four states, including Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas and Kentucky.
