Early Arrival: Undocumented Immigrants Eligible for Driverís Licenses in NY
By Max Siegelbaum

The vast majority of families return for their immigration court hearings, according to new data analyzed by Syracuse Universityís Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. As of the end of May, 47,000 families seeking refuge in the U.S. had received one or more hearings. Nearly six out of every seven families released from federal custody had shown up for their initial court hearing, while 99 percent of those with representation appeared. This directly contradicts Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan, who testified last week that 90 percent of families caught crossing the border tracked under a recent program skipped their court hearings
