Man Without a Country

When viewed in terms of the activities of the past two American presidential administrations, “the annual number of deportation proceedings since 9/11 increased on average from 219,941 a year under President Bush to 246,572 a year under President Obama,” according to the Syracuse University report, which, according to its authors, is based upon “a detailed analysis of the millions of records covering each deportation proceeding initiated by the Department of Homeland Security and the (INS) in Immigration Courts.” The individual case records were obtained through requests by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University under a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed with the Executive Office for Immigration Review, a unit within the Department of Justice, according to the report’s Web site home page.
