Immigration Courts Close 250,000 Cases in 2019, but Backlog of Nearly 1 Million More Still Awaits
By Jeffrey Martin

According to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a majority of the backlogged cases are in California which has 175,739 deportation cases pending. Texas is in second place with 160,759 cases while New York comes in third with 124,000 cases. Immigration Impact says that new immigration court policies set forth by the Trump administration have caused that backlog to increase. There were over 542,000 cases when Trump was inaugurated in 2017. Within three years, the number of cases has practically doubled.
