‘Trump Effect’ Wears Off as Migrants Resume Their Northward Push
By Caitlin Dickerson

Tens of thousands of people apply for asylum annually. The vast majority are denied, and cases can drag on for years, during which time many applicants are released from custody and establish ties to the United States, eventually deciding to stay illegally. Their numbers have contributed to an ever-growing immigration court backlog, with more than 650,000 cases now pending, up from 520,000 in late 2016, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a research group based at Syracuse University.
