Former deputy assistant AG: immigration court backlog ‘stunning’
By Robert Gearty

The immigration court backlog that has left asylum seekers waiting years for a ruling in their case while they remain in the U.S. is “stunning,” according to former Deputy Assistant Attorney General Tom Dupree. “This is intolerable what we have right now,” Dupree told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” Monday in response to figures showing the backlog has grown to more than 869,000 cases as of March 31. In January 2017, immigration court judges had a backlog of more than 542,000 cases, according to numbers compiled by Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse research center.
