By Maria Ines Zamudio


Nationwide, the backlog in immigration court is at an all-time high. In 2018, the backlog reached over a million cases. It would take 5.1 years to work through that load at the courtís current pace, according to an analysis by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), a group at Syracuse University. In the Chicago immigration court, it takes an average of nearly three years to adjudicate a case.
