Study: Migrant families are showing up for deportation hearings
By Stephen Dinan

TRAC said it looked at more than 65,000 migrants flagged as family cases by the immigration courts since September. All of them had cleared an initial asylum check and were looking to argue their deportation cases to a judge. “TRAC found that with rare exception virtually every family attended their court hearings when they had representation,” the researchers said. “Appearance rates at the initial hearing were 99.9%. This is in contrast to appearance rates for unrepresented families of 81.6%.”
