The swamp that needs draining now: Itís the immigration backlog ICE created through indiscriminate deportations
By Austin Kocher

When President-Elect Joe Biden takes office next month, his administration will inherit an Immigration Court backlog of nearly 1.3 million pending deportation cases ó the largest in U.S. history and nearly 2.5 times higher than the last year of the Obama administration, according to data from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. Data suggests that solving this crisis begins in Immigration and Customs Enforcement, not in the courts.
