TRAC report: Trump leaves Biden 1.3m case backlog in immigration courts

The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) has released a new report detailing the state of the immigration court backlog left by the Trump administration:

From TRAC: “When President Donald Trump assumed office, 542,411 people had deportation cases pending before the Immigration Courts. At the start of 2021, that number now stands at 1,290,766—nearly two and a half times the level when Trump assumed office just four years ago. TRAC’s detailed report provides a baseline for understanding and evaluating immigration changes likely to be implemented by the Biden administration.”
