Immigration policy shift aims at unclogging courts by halting 'low-priority' deportations
By Regina Garcia Cano

Between October 2010 and March 2011, 14.3 percent of all proceedings decided in immigration courts around the United States saw "relief" granted. That means the judges ruled that the charges were sustained, but found provisions in the law to allow the immigrants to stay in the country. In the Cleveland court, that outcome happened less than 7 percent of the time, according to numbers produced by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, based at Syracuse University.
