ONLY ON ABC-7: Backlog of immigration cases will get worse, attorney says
By Mauricio Casillas

As the number of immigrants facing deportation increases, so to does the backlog in immigration court. The federal building in Downtown El Paso can be a dreaded sight for undocumented immigrants - it is where limbo begins. The backlog of pending immigration court cases is at an all-time high, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. As of April 2017, nearly 600,000 cases were unresolved across the country - 6,000 of those cases in El Paso alone.
