By Jessie Degallado and Misael Gomez

An additional 100 immigration judges are in the works to help 424 judges already facing a staggering backlog of more than 892,000 cases, according to Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a nonpartisan resource for federal enforcement, staffing and spending. U.S. Rep. Will Hurd, a Republican in District 23, said that he and U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, a Democrat in District 20, have asked for the funding in the 2020 budget to also include teams of attorneys, legal assistants, interpreters and other support staff for the judges.
