    Justice Department: Half of young illegal immigrants skip deportation hearings, up 1,

    Justice Department: Half of young illegal immigrants skip deportation hearings, up 1,500 percent

    Half of young illegal immigrants that are caught crossing the border are no-shows in deportation courts, deciding to hide out in the country potentially for the rest of their lives, according to new Justice Department statistics.

    Potentially 25,000 mostly young, single males from Latin America do not comply with orders to appear in court, said an analysis of the Justice Department statistics.

    This year, experts project that some 60,000 “unaccompanied alien children” will cross the border. Most will be given a temporary pass into the country and orders to appear at immigration court.

    The analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies said, however, that half are no-shows who are judged in absentia.

    “The number of UACs who were ordered removed in absentia, that is, after failing to appear for immigration court, has skyrocketed from 450 in FY 2010 to 6,662 in FY 2018, an almost 1,500 percent increase during a period of time when the number of UACs apprehended increased about 272 percent (from 18,411 in FY 2010 to 50,036 in FY 2018 ). In fact, in FY 2018, half of all case completions involving UACs were in absentia orders, according to [Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review] compared to an overall in absentia average of 25 percent of all case completions,” said the report written by former immigration official Andrew Arthur.

    For several reasons, the UACs are released instead of being held, and the numbers can be staggering. A Homeland Security Department report cited by Arthur said, "Thus far in FY18, 13,186 UACs were released into the interior of the United States — that's in addition to the 42,146 UACs and 52,147 UACs who were released in FY17 and FY16 respectively, bringing the total number of UACs released from FY16 to date in excess of 107,000."

    Finding the illegals can be costly and dangerous to Immigration and Customs Enforcement. What’s more, many are protected by sanctuary cities and private organizations.

    Arthur noted that the illegals hiding in the country apparently came to the United States seeking a job or different life and weren’t driven by the types of terror back home that pushes others into the refugee and asylum programs.

    “The huge percentage of UACs in absentia orders suggests that those individuals simply entered the United States to remain in this country illegally, and are not seeking protection from some danger that would entitle them to humanitarian relief, or to some other immigration benefit,” he wrote.

    The migrant caravan heading to the U.S.-Mexico border has about 2,300 UACs, according to a UNICEF report.

    Since President Trump obviously can't end catch & release, our U.S. Congress needs to get off their dead butts and change laws, close loopholes, provide more funding for retention centers and do whatever else it takes to end our current catch & release policies. We're sending the wrong message to those wishing to take advantage of our weak immigration laws. That needs to change ASAP!
