‘Digging a bigger and bigger hole’: Shutdown stalls Trump’s deportation efforts

Before the government’s partial closure, the courts were grappling with a historic backlog of more than 800,000 cases. Then three-fourths of the roughly 400 immigration judges were furloughed, and more than 80,000 cases were canceled. The hearings will probably be rescheduled months or years down the road, undermining the administration’s goal of unclogging the court system and speeding the resolution of cases. “They are just digging a bigger and bigger hole,” said Susan Long, co-director of Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University, which publishes court data.
