Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

description

  1. Immigration Court Post-Trump Cases Show No Increase

    by , 04-21-2017 at 01:22 PM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Via Syracuse University's TRAC Immigration:

    The latest available court records through the end of March 2017 reveal little observable change in filings since President Trump assumed office. In fact, the pace of DHS issuances of NTAs (notices to appear) that initiate proceedings in Immigration Court under the Trump Administration remain similar to the pace in earlier months under President Obama. Indeed, the monthly numbers of new NTAs under President Trump continues much the same as the levels that prevailed all through the second half of FY 2016[1].

    However, because of filing and recording delays, any estimate of overall trends must be considered very preliminary in nature[2]. Indeed, just over half of the NTAs filed during the post-Trump period still reflect NTAs initiated under President Obama. These results are based upon the latest case-by-case court records obtained under the Freedom of Information Act and analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University.


    The court's records reveal that since Trump assumed office, a total of 25,942 cases have been initiated by DHS seeking removal orders. This represents the number of DHS Notices to Appear (NTAs), or comparable forms, dated after January 20, 2017 that had been filed in court as of the end of March 2017. NTAs are the official notification to an individual that DHS is seeking to deport them. NTAs dated after Trump assumed the presidency and that have already been filed and recorded by the court are referred to as "Trump" cases." In contrast, court-recorded NTAs dated during FY 2017 but before Trump assumed office are denoted as "Obama" cases.


    While the pace of filings remains unchanged, there has been a sharp change between Trump and Obama cases in whether individuals are detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) while their cases are pending. At the time of the court filing the majority (54%) of Obama's cases were not detained. This was true for only a quarter (25%) of Trump's cases. Most of the remaining individuals were still detained. Figure 1 compares the detention status of Obama versus Trump cases as of the end of March 2017.

  2. ICE Arrests of Noncriminals Plummet under Trump Administration

    by , 04-19-2017 at 09:05 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Via immigration lawyer Bryan Johnson:

    Immigration Arrests of noncriminals dropped by 13% under the Trump administration, compared with the overall percentage of noncriminals arrested from 2009 to 2016 under the Obama administration, according to statistics provided to the Washington Post as well and the Senate Judiciary Committee:





    Mr. Johnson explains that:

    Arrests of noncriminals this year are much, much lower than the peak enforcement years of the Obama administration.

    As a matter of percentage, under Trump, ICE arrests of noncriminals account for 25.47% of of total arrests. (5441 out of 21,362)


    In the year of 2014 in the same time period, under Obama, ICE arrests of noncriminals accounted for slightly less than .1% more, at 25.6% of total arrests (7,482 out of 29,328).

  3. Deportations to Mexico Have Dropped by 20 Percent Under Trump

    by , 04-17-2017 at 08:57 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    People are entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts. Here are some facts via the New York Times:

    According to statistics from Immigrations [Sic] and Customs Enforcement, the number of Mexican citizens deported from the United States in the first three months of 2017 dropped by nearly 20 percent from a year earlier.

    The Mexican government’s statistics also show a slowdown in Mexican citizens being kicked out of the United States during January and February, with fewer deportations in those months than during any month last year. (March figures were not yet available.)

  4. Immigration Court Cases Post-Trump Not Dissimilar to Obama

    by , 04-05-2017 at 06:20 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Via Syracuse University's TRAC Immigration:

    Over nine out of ten post-Trump cases rely on immigration charges as the basis for seeking a removal order. About 40 percent are for illegal entry, while 51 percent were for other immigration charges. The most common of these other types of immigration charges were for no "current valid immigrant visa," or simply "being present in the country in violation of the law." In only 2 percent of the cases were persons charged with having an aggravated felony, while an additional 6 percent were charged with participating in other types of criminal behavior. There were no terrorism charges, and just 3 cases where the individual was charged with a "national security violation."


    While this pattern is not dissimilar to the pattern of charges observed in Immigration Court cases under President Obama, there has been a shift away from illegal entry as the grounds for seeking deportation and a rise in other immigration offenses, such as not currently having a valid immigrant visa which can occur if the person entered legally and then stayed beyond the period permitted under their visa.

  5. Dershowitz Predicts Supreme Court will Find Travel Ban Constitutional

    by , 03-16-2017 at 08:06 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)


    Famed Constitutional Law Professor Alan Dershowitz believes Trump's executive order banning travel from 6 Muslim majority countries will be easily upheld by the Supreme Court stating "I do not think it's unconstitutional. I think the Supreme Court will uphold it even if Gorsuch is not yet on the Supreme Court. But if he does make it there in time then it will be a clearer victory for the Trump administration in the Supreme Court."
