Behold the Wall
By Emily Neil

As of January 2019, there were more than 800,000 cases pending adjudication in U.S. immigration courts, according to Syracuse Universityís Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) - a number that is double what it was five years ago, and which represents a 61 percent increase in the number of cases backlogged since Sept. 2016, towards the end of the Obama Administration. In part due to the Trump administrationís more aggressive arrest policies, and the elimination of a more structured deportation priority system, what the backlog essentially translates to is yet another bureaucratic wall for those who risk their lives to cross the border and seek safety in the U.S.
