Waiting Game: Local Immigration Court Judges will begin hearing cases from another state. What does that mean for Utah?
By Kelan Lyons

According to data from Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a nonpartisan database maintained at Syracuse University, immigrants—referred to in court as "respondents"—appearing before the Salt Lake City court's three judges wait an average of 510 days between when they're issued a notice to appear by the Department of Homeland Security and when a judge rules on their case. It's not clear how the large chunk of cases being reset will affect wait times, though Kaltenbacher notes in her statement that respondents might request an earlier hearing date.
