By Jeremy Redmond

In Georgia, the government has just seven immigration judges. That works out to nearly 1,000 cases per judge, based on the Justice Departmentís most recent count. Meanwhile, it takes 353 days on average for a case to be resolved in Atlantaís immigration courts, according to a study by Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a research organization that monitors the federal government. Nationwide, the average is 302.
