Over 90% Of Summer Of 2014 Illegals Skipping Immigration Court Hearings

Illegals cross southern border

Not that we all didn’t know this was coming, but thanks to legwork done by Robert Arnold of Channel 2 in Houston, we are getting a good idea of how bad the results from this summer’s illegal alien invasion are:

According to the [Executive Office of Immigration Review] EOIR, of the 30,467 families and unaccompanied children caught crossing the border between July and October, only 22 percent have received a final disposition as to whether they will be allowed to stay in the U.S. or be deported.

Of the 15,614 families caught crossing the border, but not detained, 4,197 have been ordered removed from the U.S. However, 96 percent of those removal orders were done “in absentia.”

The EOIR states an “in absentia” order is done when a person fails to show in immigration court.

Out of the 1,428 families caught crossing the border and detained, 21 have been ordered removed. Forty-three percent of these orders were done “in absentia.”

Of the 13,425 unaccompanied children caught crossing the border between July and October, 1,671 have been ordered removed from the U.S. Ninety-two percent of these orders were done “in absentia.”

Typically the EOIR reports an annual 11 to 15 percent “in absentia” rate.

To recap, not quite a quarter of the “families” caught illegally crossing the southern border into the United States, and not detained, have been ordered deported and hardly any of them were in the courtroom to hear that.  Of the children crossing the border, a little over ten percent have been ordered removed from the country and over 90% of them were not in the courtroom when the order was given.

That means that federal dollars will need to be used to find these people and fulfill the court’s  decisions.  Any American with an ounce of common sense knows just how little results will come from that effort.  It’s a big country.  There’s a lot of places to hide.

In the meantime, as predicted, the illegal alien children have come to America and have disappeared.  Just like they always do.
