Border crisis: A look at the numbers of unaccompaied children detained
By Robert Arnold

The pending unaccompanied children cases are only part of a large backlog in immigration court. According to data from Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), the number of cases currently pending in immigration court is 908,552. Part of this backlog is due to the growing number of asylum applications filed each year. Part of the more then $4 billion Congress recently approved to address what’s happening on the border will go toward hiring more immigration judges.
