For immigrants in Boston’s court, the shutdown will reverberate for years
By Marie Cramer

An estimated 86,000 immigrants had their hearings canceled as a result of the 35-day shutdown that began on Dec. 22, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a research group at Syracuse University that tracks federal immigration figures. Massachusetts, which already had a backlog of more than 28,000 cases, was among the states most acutely affected by the shutdown. Nearly 4,000 hearings had been scheduled in Massachusetts’ immigration court during the shutdown, according to the research group.
