Government shutdown closes immigration courts adding to record-high 800,000 case backlog
By Kate Smith

Once the shutdown ends, all of the cancelled hearings will be rescheduled, but immigration attorneys aren't hopeful about the timeline. As of November 30, the immigration court system already had a backlog of more than 800,000 cases, a 49 percent increase since January 2017, when President Donald Trump took office, according to Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC).
