 U.S. immigration courts are riddled with delays and inaccurate reports, according to a report issued Tuesday by the inspector general of the Justice Department, the San Antonio Express-News writes.

The report shows that immigration courts have overstated accomplishments and failed to properly document persistent delays that are crowding the dockets and court calendars, the San Antonio Express-News reported.

The inspector general report is based on eight sample states and 1,785 immigration removal cases.

About 53% of case averaged four continuances that resulted in more than a year of delays, the San Antonio Express-News wrote.

Also discovered were inaccurate reports about the disposition of immigration cases.
