Biden Administration Proposes Asylum Overhaul to Reduce Backlog, Speed Deportations
By Tarini Parti and Michelle Hackman

With the surge in migrants crossing the border, the backlog of pending cases in immigration courts has been growing. There are 1.4 million pending cases at these courts, according to a tracking tool at Syracuse University. Quicker decisions on asylum cases would likely mean faster deportations for those whose cases are denied. It also could curb the incentive for migrants without valid claims for humanitarian protection to come, since their opportunity to live and work in the U.S. during the time it takes to wrap up their cases would be significantly reduced.
