Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Number of Detained Immigrants Grow, as Immigrants in Nevada wait 11 months in Deportation Cases

Rate this Entry

The Las Vegas Review-Journal has reported that in 2010 there has been an 80% increase in the backlog of cases at the Las Vegas Immigration Court.   In President Bush's last year in office (2008) there were 1,028 backlogged cases in Las Vegas.  In President Obama's second year in office the number of backlogged cases at the Las Vegas Immigration Court exploded to 2,080.  I wonder what Harry Reid has to say about this?


These statistics were compiled by Syracuse University's nonprofit Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC).  According to TRAC, nationwide the number of backlogged immigration cases (261,083) in fiscal year 2010 has grown to record numbers under President Obama. 


This clearly is the direct result of the Obama administration's 400,000 deportations per year mandate.  Unfortunately, President Obama has neglected to add a sufficient number of Immigration Judges to compensate for the exponential jump in deportation cases that stem from his change in immigration policies. The end result of this backlog is that certain immigrants are forced to remain incarcerated for longer periods of time while awaiting the outcome of their immigration hearing, which inevitably is a boon to the prison industry. 


NPR has recently reported that the Arizona immigration law may have been architected by lobbyists for the prison industry.  It would be interesting to see if the Obama administration has any similar ties.
