Backlog of immigration cases stymies immigrants in Florida
By Tony Marrero and Laura C. Morel

The number of pending cases in the country grew from about 186,000 in 2008 to roughly 516,000 in 2016, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a nonpartisan research center affiliated with Syracuse University. In the same period, Florida's pending cases grew by 63 percent, to 32,233. Immigrants in Florida are waiting an average of more than 500 days nearly a year and a half for their cases to be placed on a docket of one of 35 immigration judges presiding over courts in Orlando and Miami.
