Immigration judges drop 200K deportation cases after Biden’s DHS didn’t file paperwork in time: Report
By Candace Hathaway

Immigration judges dropped roughly 200,000 deportation cases after the Biden administration’s Department of Homeland Security failed to file required paperwork in time, according to a Wednesday report by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. TRAC, a nonpartisan research organization, reported that the DHS did not file Notice to Appear documents with immigration courts by the time of scheduled hearings for hundreds of thousands of migrants. “Without a proper filing, the Court lacks jurisdiction to hear the case and the immigrants, often asylum seekers, lack a way to move their case forward,” the report read. “These large numbers of dismissals and what then happens raise serious concerns.”
