Drop in Deportation Filings | Charleston Immigration Lawyers
Miller|Conway, Charleston Immigration Lawyers, report via the latest Immigration Court data provided by TRAC (current through the end of June 2012) the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) filings for deportation orders is down this 2012 fiscal year. New deportation proceedings have been steadily falling since the 2009 Fiscal Year when ICE filed 255,238 requests for deportation orders.
During the first nine months of the 2012 Fiscal Year, court records show a total of 142,117 new requests filed. If the fourth quarter rate of filings continues at the same pace, it is estimated that filings will reach only 212,749 this year once all late reports are in. This would represent a drop of 10 percent (more than 24,000 cases) from 2011, and more than 42,000 fewer than the number of ICE deportation order requests made during the 2009 Fiscal Year.
