Immigration cases: government shutdown impact

 In blog

You might be asking yourself, what type of effect is the current government having on the Immigration courts? The reality is, the shutdown is starting to take its toll on immigration courts that are already backed up. Unfortunately, the shutdown could be adding years to the already long wait for the immigration courts.

Another problem that is surfacing is regarding the hearings for non-detained immigration-seekers. The pressure is building up because of the lack of funding for these hearings. With that being said, the problem becomes finding an opening on the judge’s calendar. It could be years before time is available on the judge’s calendar. According to a quick TRAC data search, the state of Virginia has roughly 44,000 outstanding immigrations cases.
