By Camilo Montoya-Galvez


The U.S. immigration court system which is part of the executive branch of the federal government, not the judicial branch has been facing a burgeoning backlog of cases for years. Currently, nearly 900,000 immigration cases are pending in the system, with about 400 judges to handle them, according to Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) center, which tracks immigration court data.
