Minnesota's immigration court

Twice as many cases are pending before Minnesota's immigration court as in 2015. But it's not because Trump is trying to deport more people

Someone facing deportation in the Bloomington court who is not detained can expect to wait 1,060 days, or almost three years, before the case will be heard.
