PRIMER: Immigration Enforcement Mechanisms at the U.S. Border

The dedicated docket system has resulted in removal orders for many families appearing on these accelerated dockets. The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), an immigration data-tracking organization housed at Syracuse University, reported that from May 2021 to December 2021, over 72,000 asylum-seeking families were assigned to the dedicated docket. During that same period 11,225 were marked as completed, but only thirteen of those cases resulted in a grant of asylum or another form of removal relief.
