One in six immigration cases is rejected due to an Immigration failure
By Ben Oakley

One in six cases submitted to Immigration courts is rejected because the Office of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has not presented the corresponding citation, according to a study by Syracuse University that determined that the greatest failures are presented in Miami. This summons, known as a Notice to Appear or NTA for its acronym in English, is the official document that initiates the process of deportation of a foreigner and requires that the migrant appear before an immigration court on a certain date. The TRAC team at Syracuse University, New York, analyzed case-by-case immigration court records and found that one in six new cases is dismissed because of that omission. As of last June, there were some courts “where the majority of all completed cases are dismissals for failure to file a ‘notice to appear,'” TRAC said.
