More than 5,000 people held in federal prisons who are not U.S. citizens are still waiting on immigration courts to determine whether they should be allowed to remain in the country. Backlogs in immigration courts are a widely recognized problem, with the average criminal immigration case pending for more than 800 days, according to data maintained by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University.
