Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Latest Prosecutorial Discretion Statistics: Only 1.9% Received Favorable Exercise

Rate this Entry

TRAC has come out with the latest statistics from the Obama administration's prosecutorial discretion intiative under last year's Morton Memo. *


Here is what they found:



As of June 28, 2012 a total of 5,684 cases were closed under a special Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) program announced in August 2011.*The stated goal of the program is to reduce the massive backlog of pending matters in the Immigration Courts by identifying those that could be dismissed or put on hold through the exercise of prosecutorial discretion (PD). The number of PD closures was up from 4,585 cases closed as of the end of May; however, it still amounted to only 1.9 percent of the 298,173 cases that had been pending before the Immigration Courts as of the end of last September.



Of the 5,684 total administrative closures only 294 (5%) were granted to individuals that did not have legal representation. *So the reality is that if you want the Obama administration to help you with your deportation case, you better have an experienced immigration attorney.
