Immigration Judges Say Shutdown Made Backlog Much Worse
Immigration judges, who are administrative judges rather than Article III judges mandated by the Constitution, say that Trump’s government shutdown made things immeasurably worse for them in clearing up the massive backlog of cases they have to process for asylum seekers and others and say hundreds of more judges are needed. The 35-day government shutdown, ignited over Trump’s demands for congressional funding of his long-promised border wall, exacerbated the very immigration crisis the president claims the barrier would solve, halting nearly all immigration court cases and putting three in four immigration judges on furlough. Hearings on asylum cases, deportation, and appeals against orders of removal were delayed indefinitely, pending a “reset” upon the government’s re-opening that shuffled tens of thousands of cases to the back of the line.
