Immigration Court Backlog reaches All time HIgh

Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse


Greetings. The number of cases awaiting resolution before the Immigration
Courts reached a new all time high of 242,776 matters at the end of March
2010, according to an analysis of very timely court data by the
Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC). The case backlog has
continued to grow -- up 6.3 percent -- since TRAC's last report four months
ago, and is nearly a third higher (30.4%) than it was a mere 18 months ago.
The average length of time cases have been waiting increased to 443 days.

Caseload Tool, which provides a way to obtain case backlogs and waiting

available by nationality. For the Immigration Court Caseload Tool, go to:
