Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Report: Obama Admin Rarely Uses Prosecutorial Discretion to Close Deportation Cases

Rating: 8 votes, 5.00 average.
From Syracuse University's TRAC immigration:

(24 Apr 2014) The use of prosecutorial discretion (PD) by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to close cases in the Immigration Courts continues to be relatively rare -- only 6.7 percent of cases were closed on this basis between October 2012 and March 2014. Overall PD usage has hovered in the six to eight percent range for months, though its use varies widely by location.

As of March 31, 2014, Immigration Courts with ICE PD closures in the three to four percent range included those in San Antonio, New York City, Las Vegas and Newark. The Houston, Buffalo and El Paso courts saw even lower levels: less than three percent.

So much for "smart" immigration enforcement.
