By Muzaffar Chishti, Doris Meissner, Stephen Yale-Loehr, Kathleen Bush-Joseph and Christopher Levesque

Between FY 2017 and FY 2022, data published by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse show the rate at which individual IJs denied asylum claims varying widely, from 1 to 100 percent of cases. In January 2022, the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse reported that the main contributor to the increase in immigration court backlogs was a “deluge of new cases” at EOIR coming from border apprehensions.
