US Immigration Judge Under Pressure

The memo adds to Justice Department ongoing pressure on immigration judges to clear the immigration court systemís lengthy case backlog. The immigration courts have had a backlog for most of the past decade, due to more investment in enforcement than in adjudication. As of the end of February, the backlog stood at 684,583 pending cases according to Syracuse Universityís Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, which studies data from Freedom of Information Act requests.
