Free TRAC Webinar Focuses on Shifts in Immigration Court Orders and Backlogs

(24 Apr 2012)
During the most recent quarter (January-March 2012), the Immigration
Courts issued 2,429 fewer deportation orders than in the previous
quarter (October-December 2011).
The proportion of cases resulting in an ordered deportation also fell
slightly to only 64.1 percent. At the same time, the Immigration Court
backlog has continued to rise, last month reaching a new all-time high
of 305,556.

A free webinar is scheduled for Thursday, April 26, at 2:00pm EDT to
present and discuss these new data and the ICE prosecutorial discretion
initiative. Go to to register.

TRAC's findings are based on case-by-case data obtained from the
Executive Office for Immigration
