Early Arrival: New Jersey Detainee Tests Positive for COVID-19
By Max Siegelbaum

The immigration court backlog has now risen to 1.1 million cases as of the end of February 2020, according to Syracuse Universityís Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. At the beginning of President Trumpís term, there were 542,411 pending cases. Now, including inactive pending cases, the current backlog is over 1.4 million. Most non-detained court hearings have since been cancelled for the foreseeable future, only fueling the ride even further. Of all the counties in the U.S., Queens County has the third largest number of residents waiting for hearings, while Kings County has the fifth.
