Bidenís great immigration undoing
By Sarah Betancourt

As former president Trump cracked down on detaining people in the country without authorization, new cases flooded an already strained immigration court system. Administered by the Executive Office of Immigration Review, the national court backlog grew from 542,000 in 2017 to 1.29 million in December 2020. Massachusetts ranks 7th in the country for the number of cases waiting to be processed, with 55,395 cases. The average wait time is 4.5 years, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) of Syracuse University.
