Naperville father, facing deportation, fights to stay in U.S. to help care for daughter who has spina bifida
By Jeff Coen

According to data collected by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University, which compiles immigration data across the country, the number of removals associated with cases handled in immigration court in Chicago has swelled. In the federal fiscal year ending in September 2016, the number of removals connected to that court was 1,850. In the next fiscal year, which included eight months under Trump, the figure was 2,854; and in the fiscal year ending this fall, it is projected to rise to nearly 3,800. Meanwhile, lawyers’ organizations said, the number of stays of removal being requested for special circumstances is believed to be dipping, because attorneys do not believe they will be successful.
