Border arrests drop but interior arrests climb, especially in North Texas
By Dianne Solis

The nationís clogged immigration courts are also slowing the deportation process, as immigrants wage legal fights against deportation, analysts said. About 650,000 cases are pending in the federal immigration court system, according to a Syracuse University nonprofit called the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, or TRAC. Nationally, a case can now take nearly two years to make it through the court system, but in Texas the process is longer, at two years and four months, according to TRAC. A further complication: There are about 550,000 outstanding final orders of removal that have been issued by immigration judges.
