In Deportation Policy Test, 1 in 6 Offered Reprieve A review of the current deportation docket by the Obama administration reveals that 16 percent of those currently in proceeding have been found to pose no security risk, and will be allowed to remain in the U.S. “A review ordered by the Obama administration of virtually all 7,900 deportation cases before the immigration court here has identified about 1,300 foreigners — 16 percent — who pose no security risk and will be allowed to remain in the United States, although with no new legal status, immigration officials said Thursday. It was a fast-paced test run of the first comprehensive docket review in the nation’s immigration courts. Department of Homeland Security officials plan to extend it in coming months to all of about 300,000 deportation cases before the courts nationwide.”

Border Patrol to toughen policy With migration into the United States at all time lows, the Border Patrol to make changes to their policies which would more aggressively enforce immigration laws along the border. “The U.S. Border Patrol is moving to halt a revolving-door policy of sending migrants back to Mexico without any punishment. The agency this month is overhauling its approach on migrants caught illegally crossing the 1,954-mile border that the United States shares with Mexico. Years of enormous growth at the federal agency in terms of staff and technology have helped drive down apprehensions of migrants to 40-year lows.”

A New Fight on Licenses for Illegal Immigrants New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez has once again begun a campaign to repeal a law which allows undocumented immigrants to get driver licenses in her state. “For the third straight session, Gov. Susana Martinez, a Republican, will be pushing to repeal a nearly decade-old law that allows New Mexico residents who are in this country illegally to obtain the licenses. Debate over the issue has not only bitterly divided lawmakers in the state — one of only two that permits illegal immigrants to get the same licenses as citizens — it has also become a recurring theme of Ms. Martinez’s tenure.”
