A wave of migrants into the United States ‹ mostly from Central America ‹ face a complicated legal process and an overburdened court system.

At the end of 2013, 350,000 cases were still pending in US immigration courts, an unprecedented number, leading to court dates being pushed to as late as 2018.

The stack of pending cases has grown steadily over the last five years, and resulted in immigration judges facing an average of 1,400 cases each last year, far more than judges in other areas of government.
