Government shutdown closes immigration courts, adding to huge backlogs
By Daniel Gonzalez

Under the Trump administration, the immigration court backlog has grown to more than 809,000 cases as of the end of November, up from 629,000 at the end of fiscal year 2017, according to government data collected by Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. "Which leads to the ultimate irony, which is that this administration has declared that its mission is to move removal cases faster through the system and yet every move that they have taken since this administration has taken since this administration came into power in January 2017 has frustrated that mission," McKinney said.
