Judge blasts plan to fast-track immigration, deportation cases
By Tatiana Sanchez

The court will have 395 immigration judges by the end of this month, the highest number in the agency’s history and an increase of more than 30 percent since President Trump took office, according to the Washington Post. The immigration court backlog — which includes deportation hearings and asylum claims — increased by almost one-third under the Trump administration, with 171,656 cases added since the president took office, according to a June report by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, or TRAC, at Syracuse University. The number of cases awaiting decision reached an all-time high of 746,049 in July, TRAC data shows. The group analyzes and publishes data it collects on the activities of the U.S. federal government.
