Under Obama Number of Pending Deportations Reach an All-Time High

Obama's 1,000 deportations per day mandate is being felt in our Nation's immigration Courts.

Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), a data gathering, data research and data distribution organization at Syracuse University, has reported that at the end of March 2010 there are 242,776 unresolved immigration court cases, a new all-time high.

An analysis of the data reveals that the immigration court backlog is growing by 6.3 percent since TRAC’s last report at the end of 2009.  This number is 30.4% higher than it was 18 months ago prior to Obama's election.

The added pressure on our immigration courts has resulted in the increase of the average length of time an individual must wait to have their matter resolved to up to 443 days.

Is this the Change you believed in?
