1 In 4 New Immigration Cases Now Involve Mexicans
By Bryan Koenig

New U.S. immigration court cases involving Mexicans continued to decline this fiscal year, dropping to one in four filings so far, while new cases involving children made up 35 percent of filings, according to a study released Monday. The number of deportation cases involving individuals from Mexico has decreased almost every year since peaking in fiscal 2009, according to a report released Monday by Syracuse University-based data organization Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. Meanwhile, the report noted that more than one-third of new immigration court filings involved children, either with a woman or on their own seeking refuge in the U.S. “These cases continue to originate largely with three Central American countries: El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras,” TRAC said.
