Despite drop in numbers, Border Patrol apprehensions remain high
By Robert Arnold

The historic number of people caught crossing the border or deemed inadmissible continues to fuel a backlog of cases in immigration court. According to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, there are nearly 1.5 million cases pending in immigration court. TRAC data shows the national average length of time a case is pending in immigration is now 933 days. In Houston immigration courts, which are some of the busiest in the nation, the average time a case is pending is 1,205 days.
