Majority of deportation proceedings this fiscal year ended with migrants allowed to stay in U.S., data shows
By Sandra Sanchez



As far as causality, itís very hard to say because the main factors that drives these outcomes is not just national policy, but also the composition (nationality) of migrants whose cases are being completed, Kocher told Border Report on Wednesday.Still, this is the lowest rate of cases ordered deported since 1988, Kocher said.
 
More than half of the deportation cases that have been closed so far in the Fiscal Year 2021 have resulted in the migrants being allowed to remain in the United States, new data shows. Of 68,962 deportation cases processed this fiscal year, 33,687, or 58%, have resulted in the migrants being allowed to stay, while 24,684 were ordered deported, according to newly released data from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University. Most of the stays were issued in California with 6,084, followed by Texas with 5,582. Most of the deportations also resulted from proceedings in Texas and California, with the immigration court in Dallas leading the way (1,083), followed by San Francisco (835), the data found.
