Over 7,000 immigrant kids get deportation orders without having their day in court
By Ted Hesson

Kids donít get a free pass in federal immigration court, according to recent statistics. At least 7,706 children have been ordered deported since a spike in migrants from Central America began in 2013, the Los Angeles Times reported on Friday. The minors were ordered removed from the country after failing to appear in court, the L.A. Times reported, citing data from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. In response to the soaring numbers of Central American children and families crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally last summer, the Obama administration began speeding up deportations of new arrivals in June.
