Why New York's Immigration Court Is Even Busier, With Fewer Judges, Under Trump
By Beth Fertig

These days, the average wait time in New York’s immigration court is more than two years, according to Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. President Trump has placed more pressure on the court system with his immigration policies. In April, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that all adults crossing the Mexican border would be sent to detention. To support the mission, he said, the Department of Justice had “already surged 25 immigration judges to detention centers along the border.”
