Immigration attorneys face courtroom challenges amid pandemic
By Camila DeChalus

The postponement of cases in the immigration courts has exacerbated a backlog in the system that has topped one million cases. The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University recently reported that 368,000 immigrants with cases already pending in the system have been adversely affected by the pandemic-related closures. Once scheduling delays for the rest of the cases in the immigration courtís backlog are taken into account, at least 850,000 immigrants will be affected by the shutdown, the research group estimated.
