Evangelical leaders call for release of some detained immigrants to stop spread of COVID-19
By Samuel Smith

According to a late March report from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse of Syracuse University, about 100,000 cases were added to the immigration court’s backlog since the beginning of the fiscal year 2020 with over 1.1 million cases pending before the court as of the end of February 2020. “This is up from 10,000 — or just under 40 percent of the nationwide total — four years prior,” the TRAC report reads. “Over the same period, the total number of detainees with criminal convictions remained consistently between a low of 16,000 in March 2015 to a high of just over 19,000 in late 2017 and early 2018.”
