Legal immigrants face deportation too
By Susan Stellin

From last October through July, immigration judges granted just 43 percent of the deportation orders the government sought, according to records obtained by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University down from 70 percent in 2011. Another TRAC report found that ICE has failed to focus on serious criminals, despite promising to do so in 2014. Only half of the immigrants that ICE asked local law enforcement to detain late last year had any criminal conviction; the most common offenses were DUIs, assault and selling marijuana.
