Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Obama is Still Prioritizing the Deportation of Refugee Children

Rate this Entry
On February 3, 2015, the Department of Justice, Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) issued a memorandum advising immigration judges to reassess the scheduling of specific types of deportation cases. This is the first time there has been a formal change of docketing priorities since the summer of 2014, when the Obama administration decided to fast track refugee children through the deportation process, preferably without a lawyer.

This is great news right? Obama is finally prioritizing the deportation of serious criminals like he has repeatedly said he would? Wrong. Refugee children are still number one the deportation priority list.

Here is the order:

  • Unaccompanied children that aren't in custody;
  • Mothers with their children that aren't in custody;
  • Mothers with children that are in custody;
  • And finally recent border crossers in custody.

After immigration judges schedule all of the above for a deportation hearing they can then turn their attention to deporting serious criminal and national security risks.
