Memphis Immigration Court set to reopen in late July, but fear, uncertainty remain
By Daniel Connolly Maria Clark

The Memphis court hasn't held hearings since March. It's on the fifth floor of Brinkley Plaza, an office building at 80 Monroe Avenue in Downtown. It's one of 67 immigration courts and two adjudication centers throughout the United States and its territories. Working without juries, immigration judges decide which immigrants should stay in the United States and which should be deported. More than half of all immigrants in the nation's courts come from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. The Memphis court currently handles more than 25,000 pending deportation cases, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University.
