An Estimated 96 Percent of Border Surge ILLEGALS Remain In The U.S.

An estimated 96 percent of the Central Americans apprehended illegally entering the U.S. since last summer remain in the U.S., according to data from the Justice Department’s Executive Office of Immigration Review.
The data shows that more than 77,000 illegal immigrant adults and minors were apprehended and served Notices to Appear between July 18, 2014 and May 26, 2015. Just over 3,000 appeared before a judge and were ordered removed.
Nearly 96 percent of cases either received judicial or administrative amnesty, were ordered removed “in absentia” (where in they did not appear for the proceedings), or the case has not been decided yet. About 900 were listed as voluntary departures, the status of their departures is, however, unclear.
According to background on the document provided by the office of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) even the more than 3,000 illegal immigrant adults and minors ordered removed before a judge could still remain in the U.S. as many are not in custody either before or after their hearings.
To illustrate with a hypothetical: a Central American adult arrives at the border, is briefly detained, asserts “credible fear” and is released with a Notice to Appear. The individual decides it is worth pursuing an asylum claim – which provides access to numerous federal aid programs, and ultimately green cards, citizenship and chain migration – so appears in court. Their is claim is rejected and they are ordered removed and told to periodically check in with ICE but, instead, they vanish into the wind. (Even if they are subsequently arrested, ICE will likely not place a detainer on them, unless they have a certain kind of criminal history). Yet, the individual in this hypothetical is listed under “[] Decision” as “Removed.”
Meanwhile, there remain approximately 900,000 immigrants still in the U.S. with final orders of deportation to their name, of those some 170,000 are convicted criminals.
“It is therefore almost certainly the case that more than 96% of those apprehended Central American arrivals still remain in the United States, as more arrive by the day,” Sessions office noted.
