This Major Qualifying Project encompasses an analysis of the United States defensive asylum process with the goal of providing information to assist decision makers for immigration policy. Currently, there are over one million pending immigration cases that include asylum seekers who are waiting for a hearing. Through the use of data and regression analysis, queuing theory, simulation, and optimization, the team developed a web-based tool to aid in resource allocation at the United States southern border. The web tool takes these relationships and user input data to output a sector-by-sector allocation of judicial resources to minimize time in system, queue size, and costs.
