More immigrants avoiding deportation in court

According to a recent report, almost 50 percent of all immigrants before a federal judge who specializes in immigration cases are now winning their deportation cases, effectively allowing them to stay in this country for the time being. This statistic reflects an ongoing trend of the government's losing more and more of the cases that they prosecute in order to seek the deportation of an undocumented immigrant. This trend has been ongoing for the last five years. However, it is not clear whether or not the government successfully appealed some of the cases that the government lost. Although some states have been noted for being particularly pro-immigrant when it comes to deportation proceedings, Illinois is not one of these states.

Some experts say that the statistics may be misleading. There are thousands of aged, pending immigration cases, and the government's policy has shifted to affording some flexibility when an immigrant is not a threat to the safety of the general public or the interests of the United States. These factors may be making it easier, for the time being, for immigrants to win deportation cases.

An immigration case in which a person faces the possibility of deportation can be a very scary and traumatic event, especially if the immigrant has lived in the United States for some time. Deportation can mean having to start over in life and can also possibly mean having to leave family and children behind. For a person facing deportation, it may therefore be very important to get the right information in order to evaluate all of the available options.
