    Court-ordered deportations surge after Trump ends Obama-era delay tactics

    by Kelly Cohen | Nov 12, 2017, 12:01 AM

    Government data shows the Trump administration has already shifted the "culture" of immigration attorneys, who used to have more tools under the Obama administration to delay court decisions on whether to remove illegal immigrants, but are now being forced to push for a final verdict more quickly.

    Under Obama, immigration attorneys were more likely to leave cases for illegal immigrants in limbo, thus preventing them from ever ruling on whether they needed to be removed from the U.S. An official from the Executive Office for Immigration Review explained to the Washington Examiner that attorneys would push for an administrative closure, or a pause in the proceedings before an administrative judge.

    That pause could be achieved by seeking continuance in the case, which might then make it easier to justify a decision not to prosecute.

    “Rather than getting [a decision on removal proceedings] … Instead it created this culture of seeking continuance to try to build up a request for prosecutorial discretion for administrative closure, and so it had a ripple effect,” the Department of Justice official said.

    A report released by the Center for Immigration Studies earlier this year said the Obama era closed up to 200,000 deportation cases by using administrative closure.

    But statistics provided by EOIR show that since President Trump took office, total orders of removal and final decisions issued by an immigration judge have increased.

    From February to the end of September, immigration judges issued 100,000 final decisions on cases — and increase of 16 percent over the same period in 2016. The total number of removal orders increased 29 percent.

    And since Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a memorandum to all immigration judges, court administrators, attorney advisors and judicial law clerks, and immigration court staff in July, the DOJ official said there has already been a change in how continuances are used. The six-page memo reminded immigration judges when administrative closures should actually be used.

    “[T]he delays caused by granting multiple and lengthy continuances, when multiplied across the entire immigration court, exacerbate already crowded immigration dockets,” the memo said.

    Matthew Kolken, an immigration lawyer, said that in contrast, the Obama administration used administrative closure as a means to clear the immigration court’s docket of active deportations by “by triaging cases they deemed to be a low priority for deportation.”

    "They utilized a mechanism called administrative closure to remove the immediate threat of deportation by putting an immigrant into a state of legal limbo. Although still subject to the immigration court's jurisdiction, an immigrant facing deportation would no longer have to be concerned about having their case scheduled for a hearing. In sum, their case was put on the back burner of the stove, with the burner turned off," Kolken described to the Washington Examiner.

    "President Trump's administration is now actively moving those cases back to the front burner of the stove and turning the heat back on so that deportation hearings may be scheduled for those who received a temporary reprieve," he said.

    Donald Trump’s Deputies Spike Repatriation of Illegals

    by NEIL MUNRO
    12 Nov 2017

    President Donald Trump’s deputies are ramping up enforcement of the nation’s popular immigration laws, and are repatriating more illegal immigrants back to their homes.

    The Washington Examiner reported the repatriation numbers on Sunday:

    From February to the end of September, immigration judges issued 100,000 final decisions on cases — and increase of 16 percent over the same period in 2016. The total number of removal orders increased 29 percent.

    And since Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a memorandum to all immigration judges, court administrators, attorney advisors and judicial law clerks, and immigration court staff in July, the DOJ official said there has already been a change in how continuances are used. The six-page memo reminded immigration judges when administrative closures should actually be used.

    “[T]he delays caused by granting multiple and lengthy continuances, when multiplied across the entire immigration court, exacerbate already crowded immigration dockets,” the memo said.


    The top-level pressure for more effective enforcement comes after President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama spent 16 gradually reducing enforcement of the laws, so allowing the population of illegals to stay at roughly 12 million, despite the terrible economy.

    For example, in 2015, Obama’s deputies repatriated only 70,000 illegals found in cities far from the border. That number was less than one percent of resident illegals and was one-third of the 235,000 interior illegals who were sent home in 2009. Moreover, most of the illegals sent home by Obama were those who had been found guilty of violent crimes in the United States.

    In May 2016, Obama’s declining repatriation numbers were highlighted by the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest:



    Four million Americans turn 18 each year and begin looking for good jobs in the free market.

    But the federal government inflates the supply of new labor by annually accepting 1 million new legal immigrants, by providing almost 2 million work-permits to foreigners, by providing work-visas to roughly 500,000 temporary workers and doing little to block the employment of roughly 8 million illegal immigrants.



    The Washington-imposed economic policy of mass-immigration floods the market with foreign labor, spikes profits and Wall Street values by cutting salaries for manual and skilled labor offered by blue-collar and white-collar employees. It also drives up real estate prices, widens wealth-gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools and college education, pushes Americans away from high-tech careers, and sidelines at least 5 million marginalized Americans and their families, including many who are now struggling with opioid addictions.

    The cheap-labor policy has also reduced investment and job creation in many interior states because the coastal cities have a surplus of imported labor. For example, almost 27 percent of zip codes in Missouri had fewer jobs or businesses in 2015 than in 2000, according to a new report by the Economic Innovation Group. In Kansas, almost 29 percent of zip codes had fewer jobs and businesses in 2015 compared to 2000, which was a two-decade period of massive cheap-labor immigration.

    Americans tell pollsters that they strongly oppose amnesties and cheap-labor immigration, even as most Americans also want to favor legal immigrants, and many sympathize with illegals. Because of the successful cheap-labor strategy, wages for men have remained flat since 1973, and a growing percentage of the nation’s annual income is shifting to investors and away from employees

    Shut down detention centers...start deporting women, children...ALL of them within 24 hours!

    Hand them over to THEIR authorities to take care of!

    They are not US citizens...no rights, no court, no detention, no medical care, no lawsuits.

    Yes, shut down the detention centers.

    Otherwise, it will do little good. Dententions make the 'for profit prison corporations' happy, though.

    I would like to see exactly how many have actually been returned - not ordered returned - but actually returned.

    Then I would like to see employers prosecuted - not just fined. A company can be fined, but keep it in court for years, while continuing to break the law.

    At 100K a year, how long will it take to get the 30 million sent home?

    Until the government files criminal charges against those hiring illegals, and padlocks on the doors if they don't cease and desist, all this other stuff is just a very expensive waste of resources.

    "According to new figures from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, ICE officials deported 84,473 people between Feb. 1 and June 30 -- resulting in a rate of about 16,900 people per month. If this rate continues through the end of the fiscal year in September, it will place deportation levels squarely behind the 20,000 people per month rate they were at last year under former President Barack Obama."

    Deportation levels under Trump are lower than ever during Obama era

    This is what I've been saying all along. Go after the source, the employers, with heavy fines and jail time.

    Thank you AG Jeff Sessions!
