Philadelphia Citizenship Lawyers Report: Immigrants Winning More Deportation Cases

A new report from Syracuse University provides hope for individuals possibly facing deportation.  According to the Transaction Records Clearinghouse report, almost 50% of immigration deportation cases do not result in deportation for the immigrants.  Since October 2013, immigration judges have ruled in favor of immigrants in approximately half of the 42,816 deportation cases heard by the immigration courts. This is the highest success rate for immigrants in over 20 years.

The Obama Administration continues its efforts to address the large backlog of deportation cases.  Currently there are over 360,000 pending deportation cases.  In addition to dismissing thousands of pending cases, the Obama Administration had directed the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency to exercise discretion when dealing with immigrants who do not pose a threat to national security or public safety. Additional programs, including the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, are also aimed at reducing the backlog of deportation cases.  Under this program, young immigrants living in the United States illegally have the opportunity to get a work permit and remain in the country for up to two years.
