Immigration Courts In Obama Years: Backlog Skyrockets, While Odds Of Deportation Plummet
By Alex Pfeiffer

Since President Barack Obama has taken office, non-citizens in immigration court face a significantly lower chance of being deported while the backlog in immigration courts has more than doubled. In Fiscal Year 2009, 76.2 percent of decisions by immigration judges resulted in deportations of non-citizens. In Fiscal Year 2015, that number had fallen to 46.4 percent, and so far in Fiscal Year 2016 the frequency of deportation orders from immigration judges is 42.8 percent. This data and much of the data following in the article is from Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse.
