Migrant Influx Fuels Push For Right To Immigration Counsel
By Marco Poggio

According to Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a research institution based at Syracuse University, there were more than 3.5 million cases pending in immigration courts nationwide at the end of March. The backlog has grown exponentially over the past decade: it was 325,000 cases in fiscal year 2012 and has grown steadily ever since. Miami has been the immigration court with the highest number of pending cases this year over 300,000, as of April followed by New York, Chicago and Orlando, Florida.
