Shutdown's hidden impact: Frozen inspections, fraud cases
By Eric Wolff

Federal immigration courts, which fall under the Justice Department, have drastically reduced their workload as the majority of roughly 400 judges have been furloughed, said Ashley Tabaddor, president of the National Association of Immigration Judges. That will add to the courtís growing case backlog, which stands at more than 809,000 cases, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. As many as 100,000 people waiting for a court hearing could be affected if the shutdown continues through the end of the month, the clearinghouse said
