“Even before the coronavirus hit, the immigration court system was reeling under unprecedented backlogs, delays, and public outcry from lawyers and NAIJ, which represents over 400 of the judges at the nation’s 63 courts. Immigration courts now face over 1.1 million backlogged cases, a number that has skyrocketed under the Trump administration,” the Chicago Reader reports. According to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, or TRAC, a data research and data distribution organization at Syracuse University, Florida alone had 94,600 pending immigration cases as of March.
