Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

The Impact of the Sequester on the Immigration Courts

Rate this Entry

The Washington Post reports that the imminent sequester will result in a loss of $15 million of funding to immigration Courts, which will trigger a hiring freeze on all "key critical positions" including new immigration judges.  Also on the chopping block: interpreters, legal support and I.T. staff.


Attorney General Eric Holder stated that the hiring freeze will result in a 6% increase of backlogged removal hearings bringing the number to 350,000.  On average it takes approximately 550 days to bring an immigration court case from institution to completion.  Expect that number to increase as well.
