Immigrant Rights Advocates May Sue the Trump Administration Over False Court Dates
By Massoud Hayoun

The practice of sending immigrants false court dates appears to be throwing the immigration courts into greater disarray and at a time when the Trump administration is promising to streamline proceedings. At the start of Donald Trump's presidency, his administration pledged to significantly slash the immigration court backlog, but from the time he took office until the end of July, there was a 38 percent increase in pending cases, according to data compiled by Syracuse University non-profit data research center, Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse.
