    Judges nixed DHS bids to deport illegals 100,000 times: report

    Judges nixed DHS bids to deport illegals 100,000 times: report

    By Malia Zimmerman
    Published August 18, 2016 FoxNews.com

    Immigration judges around the country are denying the Department of Homeland Security’s attempts to deport illegal immigrants in record numbers, according to a new report.

    Over the last 10 months, immigration judges opted against the department’s efforts to remove some 96,223 illegal immigrants, including criminals, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a Syracuse University-based nonprofit.


    At this rate, TRAC estimates the number of illegal immigrants allowed to remain in the U.S. despite DHS attempts to remove them will surpass last year’s breaking number of 106,676. With the court’s protection, subjects can often remain indefinitely.


    “It’s concerning to me that the immigration courts are becoming such a frequently used back-door route to green cards,” said Jessica Vaughan, director of Policy Studies for the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington, DC-based research institute, noting these cases will be nearly 10 percent of the green cards approved in 2016.


    “Many of them arrived illegally, and are being awarded legal status simply because they managed to stay a long time and have acquired family members here.”


    One in four of the illegal immigrants allowed to stay in the country despite DHS efforts to remove them this year is from Mexico, TRAC reported.


    Another 44 percent were from the three Central American countries — El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras — where vast numbers of unaccompanied minors and women with children have crossed the border to seek asylum.


    There are a number of reasons why an individual may be allowed to remain in the country, according to TRAC.

    “… the judge can find that the government did not meet its burden to show the individual was deportable,” the report stated. “Or, the judge may have found that the individual was entitled to asylum in this country, or may grant relief from removal under other provisions of the law.

    “A person also may be allowed to remain because the government requests that the case be administratively closed through the exercise of ICE's prosecutorial discretion, or for some other reason,” the report also stated.


    The Phoenix federal Immigration Court had the highest percentage of non-citizens allowed to stay in the country over the objections of DHS officials.


    “In more than four out of every five, or 82.2 percent of its 3,554 cases closed so far in 2016, the individuals were successful in their quest to remain in the U.S,” TRAC reported.


    The New York Immigration Court was not far behind at 81.5 percent of the 16,152 non-citizen cases closed to date, followed by the Denver Immigration Court at 78.0 percent of its 831 cases.


    Nationwide, there is a backlog of around 500,000 cases pending in the immigration courts, and as it grows, judges become more lenient, said Ira Mehlman, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).


    “This is by design,” Mehlman said. “The longer the attorneys draw out the cases, the better it is for their clients because the likelihood that they will get to stay in the country increases. It is also better for the immigration attorneys because they can charge more fees.


    “From the judge’s perspective, because the courts are so backlogged, it is easier to let people stay in the country than actually try to remove them,” he said. “There are endless layers of appeal and no finality in it.”


    On the opposite end of the scale, Oakdale, La., Lumpkin, Ga. and Napanoch, N.Y., Immigration Courts only allowed between 11.3 percent and 17.5 percent of the non-citizens slated for removal to remain in the U.S., TRAC reported.


    There is a great deal of money spent, and government resources dedicated, to prosecute a removal case for detention, to monitor those who are released, for attorneys to prosecute removal cases and for the court personnel to conduct hearings, said Claude Arnold, a retired U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations.


    Arnold believes the Obama administration has sent the message to immigration judges to push back when DHS attempts to enforce its rules regarding illegal immigrants. By law, they are subject to deportation when local, state or federal authorities cross paths with them, but several local governments refuse to cooperate in the removal process.


    The administration of the immigration courts does not comment on third-party analysis of data, said Kathryn Mattingly, spokesperson for the Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review. However, she said the year prior to the TRAC report, in Fiscal Year (FY) 2015, immigration judges granted 48 percent of asylum applications, marking the third year in a row that percentage has decreased, falling from 56 percent in 2012.

    I.C.E. isn't the problem.

    D.H.S. isn't the problem.

    IMMIGRATION JUDGES ARE THE PROBLEM.

    Every illegal alien gets an immigration hearing to decide if they can be deported.

    (Unless they sign a VOLUNTARY RETURN form.)

    If an immigration judge rules that they can't be deported

    the only thing I.C.E. or D.H.S. can do is release them.

    Judges Block 57 Percent of Deportations Sought by DHS

    A majority of the illegal aliens the Department of Homeland Security attempted to remove from the United States so far this fiscal year have been shielded from deportation by immigration judges.

    According to government statistics analyzed by the Syracuse University-based Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, during the first ten months of this fiscal year, immigration judges ruled that 96,223 aliens who the government sought to deport could remain in the U.S., a level on pace to exceed the record 106,676 noncitizens judges determined could remain in the U.S. last fiscal year.

    The judges’ determinations in favor of an alien remaining in the U.S. accounted for 56.8 percent of the cases judges have determined this fiscal year to date, or October 2015 through July 2016, according to TRAC.


    Of the aliens judges ruled could remain in the U.S., 25 percent were from Mexico and 44 percent were from one of three Central American countries that have been the source of a recent swell of illegal immigration by unaccompanied minors and family units, specifically El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.


    “There are a number of reasons why an individual may be allowed to remain in the country. For example, the judge can find that the government did not meet its burden to show the individual was deportable. Or, the judge may have found that the individual was entitled to asylum in this country, or may grant relief from removal under other provisions of the law,” TRAC explained in its analysis, noting that there are other reasons an alien may avoid deportation, like the government may also close cases via “prosecutorial discretion.”


    Across the 55 immigration courts in the U.S., according to TRAC’s analysis, the Phoenix Immigration Court had the highest share of aliens ruled allowed to remain at 82.2 percent. The New York Immigration Court had the second highest proportion of aliens determined to be allowed to remain, at a rate of 81.5 percent. The Denver Immigration Court (78 percent), San Antonio Immigration Court (76.8 percent), and Miami Immigration Court (75.8 percent) offered the third, fourth, and fifth most “remain” judgements.


    As TRAC highlighted, those courts with the lowest share of “remain” determinations were courts that handle cases for aliens in detention facilities.


    “At the other extreme were the Oakdale, Louisiana, Lumpkin (Stewart), Georgia, and Napanoch (Ulster), New York Immigration Courts where only between 11.3 percent and 17.5 percent of the individuals were allowed to remain in the U.S.,” TRAC noted.

    Federal judges have blocked hundreds of thousands of illegal alien deportation orders

    August 22, 2016
    Dan Calabrese

    Even known criminals.

    I guess it's a good news/bad news story. Despite the determination of the president to never deport an illegal alien, since they're all prospective Democrat voters, there are still some people in the Department of Homeland Security who take their jobs seriously and issue hundreds of thousands of deportation orders each year. That's the good news.

    The bad news? Even if Obama doesn't stop them from doing their jobs, apparently there are plenty of federal judges who will. Some excellent reporting from FoxNews.com shows that over the past who years, more than 200,000 would-be deportations were halted by judges after DHS had issued the orders:

    Over the last 10 months, immigration judges opted against the department’s efforts to remove some 96,223 illegal immigrants, including criminals, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a Syracuse University-based nonprofit.

    At this rate, TRAC estimates the number of illegal immigrants allowed to remain in the U.S. despite DHS attempts to remove them will surpass last year’s breaking number of 106,676. With the court’s protection, subjects can often remain indefinitely.

    “It’s concerning to me that the immigration courts are becoming such a frequently used back-door route to green cards,” said Jessica Vaughan, director of Policy Studies for the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington, DC-based research institute, noting these cases will be nearly 10 percent of the green cards approved in 2016.

    “Many of them arrived illegally, and are being awarded legal status simply because they managed to stay a long time and have acquired family members here.”


    These judges basically take the same philosphy as Obama toward the presence of illegals, including those who are known to be involved with criminal activity: It's more egregious to uproot a family than it is to let 12 million illegal aliens overrun a nation, commit crimes, get on the public dole and undercut the cost of labor.

    It's funny: Left-wingers constantly complain that wages in this country haven't kept up with productivity. What impact do they think it has when you let 12 million people into the country illegally, working for less than the market value of labor and driving down the overall wage average? People make higher wages when the can deliver more value to employers via their labor, and thus create demand for themselves. Flooding the labor market with millions of low-cost laborers makes it harder to maintain that high demand for labor, because you've introduced all kinds of new supply that can be had for cut rates.

    But it also undermines the rule of law when even a reasonable showing of illegality can't get someone deported because they can find a friendly judge who will let them stay. I believe that, in many cases, individual illegals are doing no harm by being here. But the law is the law, and when the courts are systematically undermining the law on the one hand while the president does the same, then law means nothing and no one should fear any consequence for breaking it.

    That's where we've come to as a nation. Presidential nominees can break the law with impunity. So can people who aren't even supposed to be here. God help you if you break the law and actually get prosecuted. What a sucker you are. In today's America, that's damn near impossible.

    Judges are influenced by their associations to obama, even soros's organizations & associations to chamber of commerce chapters, area politicians etc. They are not supposed to be but they are connected to groups. Make them ALL follow the law. obama influenced many democrat mayors to become sanctuary cities and states to take refugees.

    Judges Give ‘Defacto Amnesty’ To 1/3 Of Illegals Charged With Crimes

    Kathryn Watson
    12:26 PM 08/26/2016

    America’s immigration court judges allow one in three illegal immigrants charged with serious crimes — like rape and drunk driving — roam free in the U.S.

    The judges released 32.9 percent of 5,530 illegal aliens charged with crimes since Oct. 1, 2015. That’s the highest percentage since at least 1998, according to Executive Office of Immigration Review data obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC).

    “They’re not giving them a legal status, but they’re letting them stay,” Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “So it’s like a de facto amnesty.”

    If an immigration judge decides not to order a person’s deportation, the illegal immigrant may stay in the U.S. after serving any prison time determined in a criminal court.

    They are doing what they have been told to do & for several years now. this doesn't happen overnight but a recipe used again and again for the purpose of a new American pie. We are just finding out @ it.

    Those immigration judges do not uphold law that they are bound to. They should lose their jobs and be replaced by judges that abide by law. Appointed or elected judges are political cronies with connections so they can have a very good paying job with pensions - as long s they do what their master tells them to do.
