Wait until November 2021 to see an immigration judge in San Diego
By Gustavo Solis

If you want to schedule a hearing in San Diego’s immigration court, get ready to wait. According to a new report, immigration judges in San Diego are scheduling cases as far out as November 2021 because of an increasing nationwide case backlog. On Friday, the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University published a report detailing the impact that the 1 million case backlog is having on immigration courts across the country. There are roughly 440 immigration judges in the United States and more than 1.02 million pending cases. That means each judge’s caseload is more than 2,300 cases — assuming the cases are distributed evenly.
