Mexican mother in Irving wins deportation delay, seeks to stay
By Dianne Solis

As many as 300,000 immigrants could receive case-by-case review, two government officials said in a news conference in August. Many of those candidates are likely to be college students with no criminal records who might be covered by a measure known as the DREAM Act, which has failed repeatedly to win congressional passage. Nationally, about 30 percent of deportation cases have failed this fiscal year in the immigration courts, resulting in immigrants staying in the U.S., according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University in New York. The U.S. government's percentage for successful deportation cases is higher in Texas immigration courts, with only 13 percent of immigrants staying in the country.
