Immigration Judges Behind on Caseload

"The government is not keeping up with the caseload in federal immigration courts, even with an increase in the number of judges handling the cases, the Justice Department inspector general reported Thursday.  In a report, Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz said record-keeping by the immigration courts is so flawed that it is difficult to draw conclusions about why the courts are unable to reduce the volume of cases." - Associated Press, Nov. 1, 2012.
