Trumpís shutdown is adding 20,000 cases per week to the record-high immigration court backlog
By Alan Pyke

Immigration court backlogs are growing by roughly 20,000 cases for each week the government remains shut, bloating the already record-high level of stalled hearings created by other policy choices that predate President Donald Trumpís staredown over border wall funding. Some 42,726 immigration court hearings have been cancelled since Trump withdrew his support for a government funding bill in late December, according to the Transaction Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC).
