Why Immigrant Deportations Dropped 30 Percent In Northwest
By Liz Jones

A KUOW review of immigration court backlogs suggests another possible reason for the steeper decline in Northwest removals. In Washington and Oregon courts combined, the average time to process a case increased by about 100 days from 2011 to 2013, according to the nonprofit federal data tracker, Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. That could mean the process rather than deportations are slowing down.
