Overloaded immigration judges have 1 million cases pending despite fast work
By Anna Giaritelli

The number of cases waiting to be decided, including asylum-seekers who arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border, is about 1 million, though that varies between government and nongovernmental data. The EOIR reported 987,274 open cases as of Sept. 30. However, Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a nonpartisan research center at Syracuse University, concluded more than 1,007,155 cases remained pending as of the end of August. The number of open cases now is five times greater than the 186,099 cases in the system at the end of fiscal 2008, which has inflated every year over the past decade.
