Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

ICE Success in Obtaining Deportation Orders Drops to 50%

Rate this Entry
Syracuse University's TRAC Immigration has released a report that shows that Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) success rate in obtaining deportation orders before an Immigration Judges has dropped to 50 percent, which is the lowest rate in 20 years. Last year only half of the 42,816 proceedings resulted in the issuance of an order of removal. Deportation success rates typically fluctuate between 70-80 percent.

From the report:

Five years ago deportation orders were issued for 3 out of every 4 cases (76.2%) to reach the Immigration Courts. During FY 2011 that rate had fallen to 70.2 percent; by FY 2012 it had slipped to fewer than 2 out of 3 (62.6%). Last year court records indicated a 52.9 percent success rate, and during the first four months of the current fiscal year 2014 (October 2013 - January 2014) it was down to only 50.3 percent.

TRAC found little evidence that the administration is favorably exercising prosecutorial discretion prior to the institution of removal proceedings, and that the Obama administration's deportation machine is still moving full steam ahead, only with less effectiveness.
