Courts wade through post-shutdown backlog of cases
By Lydia Wheeler

The shutdown has also had a major impact on immigration courts, which are controlled by the Justice Department, not the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts. As of Jan. 11, the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University found that 42,726 immigration court hearings had been canceled as a result of the shutdown, adding to the 809,041 active cases already backlogged.
