Texas Immigration Court Leads U.S. in Issuing Removal Orders
(19 May 2016) Immigration Court judges have issued 44,204 removal orders during the first seven months of fiscal year 2016, according to the latest available court data. Texas leads the nation with 10,102 removal orders issued so far this fiscal year, over one fifth (22.9%) of the total. Next is California with 7,056 followed by Georgia with 3,698 removal orders.

For the most recent month of April, there were 6,347 individuals ordered removed from the country in Immigration Court proceedings. Of these, 1,186 were processed in the category of "women with children" under the court's priority case system.

These latest figures are based on an analysis of case-by-case information by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University. For this analysis, TRAC obtained court records from the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
