Delays Mushroom at US Immigration Courts During Pandemic
By Aline Barros

Asylum-seekers and others awaiting their day in U.S. immigration courts will have to wait even longer due to delays that have mushroomed during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to data published earlier this month. More than 850,000 individuals are expected to be affected by the partial shutdown of immigration courts, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University, a research center that collects and analyzes data on immigration court activities. “These immigrants will now have to wait many months — if not years — before they have their day in court when their cases finally get resolved,” TRAC concluded in a report.
