U.S. claims reducing refugee numbers helps with the asylum backlog. Will it?


There are more than a million pending cases in U.S. immigration courts, according to Syracuse Universityís Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, which tracks immigration cases. Critics have argued the Trump administrationís own efforts to deport all undocumented immigrants, not only those with criminal histories, are making the immigration court backlog worse. Nonprofit organizations have also recommended a host of other ways to reduce the larger immigration case backlog, such as hiring more judges and changing some of the rules of the immigration proceedings in order to make them more efficient.
