Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

ACLU Report: 83 Percent of Deportations Ordered by Immigration Officers not Judges

Rate this Entry
The ACLU has released a report entitled American Exile: Rapid Deportations That Bypass the Courtroom, which found that 83 percent of deportations from the United States are ordered by immigration officers, not judges.

From the introduction:

As we found in a year-long investigation and close to 200 interviews and case studies, many people arrested and deported in the border zone are not strangers at the gate: They include longtime residents and parents of U.S. citizens. Others are lawful residents or workers, deported during their daily commute when federal immigration law enforcement officers summarily extinguish their rights. And then there are children and families fleeing unfathomable violence and seeking protection in the United States. Deporting these individuals without a fair hearing and sometimes with catastrophic if predictable consequences violates our human rights obligations and defies who we want to be as a country.
