Juvenile immigration case backlog grows in Nevada
By Jessie Bekker

Nevada is doing better processing immigration cases involving minors than the nation as a whole, but nearly a quarter of all such cases filed in the state since 2009 are still pending, according to federal data released last week. Much like the general backlog of deportation cases, the large load of cases involving minors continues to grow across the country, including in Nevada, the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a data distribution arm of Syracuse University in New York, reported Thursday. Of 1,470 immigration cases involving minors filed in the state since 2009, a quarter — 377 — are still pending, according to TRAC, which collects and analyzes data from the nation’s immigration courts. Nationally, about 37 percent of all such cases — 88,069 — have yet to reach a resolution.
