Hearing on “Courts in Crisis: The State of Judicial Independence and Due Process in U.S. Immigration Courts”

Immigration courts are under-resourced and overworked.1 Facing shortfalls in immigration judges and support staff, as well as limited space, immigration courts lack capacity to keep up with growing caseloads. In recent years, immigration court backlogs have increased dramatically, exceeding 1,000,000 cases in fiscal year (FY) 2019, according to Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC).
