Amid immigration debate, a call to stay deportations
By Maria Sacchetti

In 2011, the director of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the agency would focus on deporting criminals and other flagrant violators and set aside less pressing cases to use their resources more effectively. Since then, the Obama administration has halted more than 20,000 deportations in the immigration courts, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a research center at Syracuse University. But the closures reflect less than 10 percent of the court caseload and officials deported thousands of immigrants without criminal records last year.
