Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Average Wait Time in Immigration Court Rises to 667 Days

Rate this Entry
From Syracuse University's TRAC Immigration:

(12 Feb 2016) As of the end of January 2016, open cases in U.S. Immigration Court have been waiting for an average of 667 days, a new high. This is 3.7 percent longer than the 643 days average wait time at the end of FY 2015 (September 2015) and is 17.6 percent higher than it was at the end of FY 2014. Because this measure is for open cases, more processing time will generally be needed before a case is closed.

The longest times were seen in Colorado, where cases have waiting for an average of 933 days. The next longest wait was in Illinois (876 days), followed by Nebraska (862 days), Michigan (847 days) and Ohio (822 days).

These results are based upon very timely case-by-case court records obtained and analyzed by the Transactional Access Records Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University.

    Our office does not handle EOIR cases, but it's a truly remarkable statistic, either way.
    I guess I would like to see some definition of what is the "wait," i.e. is that from Master to Merits or some other metric. How many of these cases had some "other" activity (Motions to Change Venue or Motions to Recalendar, whether filed by OCC or the respondent, etc.)?

    Regardless, one possible defense to removal is now "I died of old age before they could deport me." Sort of like how we are processing F4 petitions for the Philippines, but here it helps the immigrant....
