The shutdown is over for now, but big delays loom in Immigration Court
By Jeff Gammage

An estimated 86,200 Immigration Court hearings were canceled between Dec. 22, the start of the shutdown, and Jan. 25, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. California led the nation in canceled hearings, with 9,424 through Jan. 11. New Jersey ranked fifth, with 1,894, and Pennsylvania 10th, with 1,163. “This moves the court system closer to implosion,” said former Immigration Court Judge Jeff Chase, now in private law practice in New York.
