Government shutdown affects 37,000 immigration cases

The 2013 government shutdown has delayed some immigration hearings by a year. Immigration cases meant to be tried during the first few months of 2014 are now relegated to be heard at the end of the year.

In an Oct. 16, 2013 email to his staff, Chief Immigration Judge Brian O’Leary said that over 37,000 deferred immigration hearings probably won’t be heard until 2015.

Before the shutdown, the immigration court system had many pending and unacknowledged immigration cases. This backlogging was only made much worse by the shutdown.
