41,000 immigration court cases pending in Florida

Are you and your family waiting on pending immigration court processes to finalize in Florida? If you are, rest assured that you're certainly not alone. There are tens of thousands of people waiting on their pending immigration proceedings in the state of Florida.

A recent report shows that 41,191 court cases currently have the status of pending.

6,000 pending in central Florida and Tampa areas alone

The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) is a research organization from Syracuse University. TRAC watches the activities of federal agencies. A recent TRAC report showed that 6,000 of Florida's pending immigration cases were in the areas of Tampa and central Florida. The majority of these 6,000 were in Hillsborough County and Orange County. Another 11,380 cases belonged to Miami-Dade County, representing the highest concentration of pending immigration matters in Florida.

The data for this TRAC study was sourced from the Department of Justice via multiple Freedom of Information requests. In fact, it's the first time that such data pertaining to immigration court activities has been made available to TRAC. At this time, many are worried that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement may be withholding important information -- which it used to routinely release in the past -- pertaining to its activities.

Sometimes, these individuals can employ legal strategies to speed up their processes. Those strategies might involve diligent follow-ups by their legal representatives.
