Immigrants impacted by government shutdown could wait until 2023 for court
By Lomi Kriel

With a record 827,000 pending cases, including more than 51,000 in Houston, the 35-day long shutdown pushed an already overburdened system closer to the precipice. More than 80,000 hearings were canceled, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a research center at Syracuse University. Texas had the third-most postponed hearings in the country after California and New York. Across the nation Monday, judges rescheduled some cases to 2023 even as government attorneys arrived to work with no prepared files, causing further delays.
