DENVER (AP) — In a trial of a politically divisive program, U.S. prosecutors in Denver and Baltimore are reviewing thousands of deportation cases to determine which illegal immigrants might stay in the country — perhaps indefinitely — so officials can reduce an overwhelming backlog by focusing mainly on detainees with criminal backgrounds or who are deemed threats to national security.
Federal deportation hearings for non-criminal defendants released from custody were suspended Dec. 5 for the review and resume this week. Similar reviews are planned across the country to allow U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to target deportations of illegal immigrants with criminal records or those who have been deported previously.
While the immigration courtrooms in Denver have fallen silent, prosecutors had time to examine case files, check residency history — such as whether someone was brought to the country as a child — as well as criminal history.
In Denver, 25 ICE prosecutors and three managers spent their work days during most of December and early this month poring over as many files in their case load as possible, ICE spokeswoman Barbara Gonzalez said.
“They come in on weekends,” Gonzalez said. “They’re looking at every case.”
Officials have not released information on how many cases will be placed on low priority based on the review. When they’re finished, cases of those here illegally but deemed not a threat to public safety or national security will be placed on administrative hold and the numbers will be released.
Citing tight budgets, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced this summer that nearly 300,000 deportation cases would be reviewed to determine which could be closed through “prosecutorial discretion.” Republicans have decried the policy as a back-door way of granting amnesty to people who are living in the U.S. illegally.
“We simply cannot adjudicate all these cases that are pending,” said spokeswoman Gonzalez. Some cases in Denver date to 1996, she said.
“It’s a holiday for anybody in the country illegally,” said Ira Mehlman, spokesman for the Washington-based Federation for American Immigration Reform, which opposes the initiative. “They’re doing this with the intention of dismissing as many of them as they possibly can.”
Several attempts at immigration reform have failed in recent years, including the so-called DREAM Act, which would have allowed some young illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to earn legal status if they went to college or joined the military.
In June, ICE director John Morton announced that prosecutors and immigration agents would consider a defendant’s length of time in the country, ties to the community, lack of criminal history and opportunity to qualify for some form of legal status in deciding whether to press for deportation.
Denver has about 7,800 deportation cases pending, while Baltimore has about 5,000. Hearings and deportations involving criminal immigrants continued in both Baltimore and Denver. The suspended hearings dealt only with non-criminal defendants.
Before expanding the program, officials will examine the effect of the review on caseloads. They are also seeking to balance hearing high priority cases with those in which a person might have a strong case but has waited years for a hearing because of the backlog, said former Immigration and Naturalization Service commissioner Dorris Meissner.
Those who offered prosecutorial discretion don’t have to accept, and can insist on having their case heard by a judge.
“Everybody thinks that people just want to have their case dismissed,” said Meissner. “If they accept prosecutorial discretion, it’s true they don’t go before a judge and they don’t get deported, but their case is in limbo.”
For some, word that their cases have been postponed brings relief — but not closure. They’re still in the country illegally.
Jesus Gerardo Noriega, 21, of Aurora, Colo., said he learned in December his case was being closed.
“I’m happy that I don’t have to show up in court every six months so they don’t deport me,” Noriega said. But, he added: “I’m in limbo. I can’t do anything.”
Noriega’s family brought him to the United States from Mexico when he was 9. His parents and three brothers live here legally, and he graduated from high school — but only applied for a work visa last year. He faced deportation after being arrested in April 2010 for driving with no license plate light.
Deportation cases have risen sharply since 2007, when Homeland Security began using fingerprints collected from those held in local jails to identify and deport criminals and repeat immigration violators. Those cases increased from about 174,000 in 2007 to about 298,000 in 2011, according to figures compiled by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a research group affiliated with Syracuse University.
Immigrant advocates have blasted the fingerprint program, called Secure Communities, for subjecting people to deportation after minor traffic infractions or misdemeanors. Some state laws require police to notify ICE of suspected illegal immigrants.
But advocates say they welcome the federal review as a way to deal with a sluggish immigration court system where cases can linger for years.
“The courts are a mess,” said Susan Barciela, Miami-based policy director for Americans for Immigration Justice. “The volume keeps getting bigger and people’s rights are being violated.”
During the pilot program, Denver and Baltimore immigration judges were assigned to hear detainee cases elsewhere.
“The immigration courts are empty,” said Denver immigration attorney Hans Meyer of the scene in December and early this month. “It’s a pretty busy place, so it’s kind of strange.”Illegal Immigrant News associated press, back door, backlog, barbara gonzalez, case files, case load, courtrooms, criminal backgrounds, criminal defendants, criminal history, deportation cases, deportation hearings, deportations, detainees, illegal immigrants, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, janet napolitano, prosecutorial discretion, tight budgets, u s immigration and customs enforcement

Millions of Americans are unemployed. State and local governments are under tremendous financial pressure, much of which is caused by having to provide hundreds of billions of dollars in benefits to illegal immigrants and their families. The Obama Administration is slashing funding for border enforcement, and instead of covering this outrage and the financial burden caused by illegal immigration, the liberal media prefer to generate sympathy for those that are breaking the law.
- CBS Evening News featured a report on Alabama’s tough new immigration law. The reported centered around a family that has been here illegally for 13 years. The piece portrayed them as living in fear, but brave enough to stay an fight an unjust law. (NewsBusters.org 11/24)
- NBC Evening News’ Brian Williams and Kate Snow reported on Alabama’s new immigration law, brazenly comparing it to segregationist laws of the past with Snow stating, “They feel like Alabama blacks of the Jim Crow era.” (NewsBusters.org 11/15)
- NPR ran a report from a pro-amnesty rally, comparing illegal immigrants being made to follow U.S. laws with victims of a civil rights era bombing in the 1960s. (NewsBusters.org 11/22)
- MSNBC contributor Melissa Harris-Perry took the week of Thanksgiving to make the on-air declaration that the Pilgrims were illegal immigrants. (NewsBusters.org 11/26)
The liberal media have clearly chosen sides in the immigration debate and the rule of law doesn’t matter to them.
+ + As the liberal media are pushing amnesty, they’re mum on the work of their friends in the Obama Administration dismantling what little border enforcement is in place.
MRC’s CNSNews.com reported this morning that the Obama administration has slashed spending on border fencing, infrastructure and technology, cutting it by more than half since it peaked under President George W. Bush in fiscal 2008. This leaves 1,300 miles on the US-Mexico border unfenced. As commander in chief it is President Obama’s responsibility to secure our border; he’s not doing it and the media are happy to ignore that fact.
The Obama Administration has increased annual spending by almost $1 Trillion since 2008, yet they’ve chosen to cut spending on border fencing by 56%.
As the topic of illegal immigration becomes a top news story due to the Republican primary debates, new laws passed, and the costs of illegals at all levels of government, the liberal media are ignoring this bombshell story.
Stretching back decades, the liberal media have distorted the costs, crimes and dangers associated with massive illegal immigration.
Help us make the largest possible statement when we deliver our petitions to ABC, NBC, CBS and NPR.
Thank you for standing with us on this crucial issue!

Intent on drawing a clear contrast between rival Newt Gingrich and herself, presidential candidate Michele Bachmann called for 11 million illegal immigrants to be deported from the United States in steps.
In the week since a GOP debate during which Gingrich supported legalizing some undocumented immigrants, Bachmann has pounded the former House Speaker, likening his position to “amnesty” and circulating a letter he co-authored in 2004 that supported a path for worker legalization.
Asked by radio host Laura Ingraham on Monday about an earlier statement she made differentiating between immigrants who had recently entered the country illegally from those with longstanding ties to the United States, Bachmann said she was never referring to legalization.
“What I’m talking about is the order of deportation, the sequence of deportation,” Bachmann replied. “It is almost impossible to move 11 million illegal immigrants overnight. You do it in steps.”
Bachmann said deporting those convicted of crimes would be the first step.
She also said that while she hadn’t seen any polls detailing her level of support among Hispanic voters, she believes they are seeking the same answers from government as everyone else: a chance to pursue a prosperous life.
That doesn’t include extending government benefits such as in-state tuition to illegal immigrants, Bachmann contended, this time pushing back on another of her competitors, Gov. Rick Perry, who has upheld that policy in Texas.
“When we give the welfare state, then people won’t be able to come out of it. It’s the biggest trap that people can have,” she said.Uncategorized amnesty, crimes, deportation, gop, gop debate, government benefits, hispanic voters, house speaker, illegal immigrants, laura ingraham, lederman, michele bachmann, newt gingrich, presidential candidate, prosperous life, radio host, rick perry, state tuition, undocumented immigrants, welfare state

Editor: We have been asked to let our users know about the immigration platform by a presidential candidate, Miller. Am providing a copy of the Immigration information here and you can click the link to the Miller For President web site:We the people will resolve our illegal population crisis in 2 years.
1. I will temporarily expand the USCIS and the State Department to handle the required processing of these individuals. 2. Utilizing the procedures that are used to hire 100,000 temporary U.S. Census workers, we will hire the temporary workers needed for this one time program.
3. Once the program is staffed and ready to function, establish and publish a one year registration period. 4. Increase the processing fee from the current rate of $675 to $2500 for each applicant.
5. Once the person has met all of the application requirements and they are officially accepted into the program, a temporary registration card will be issued to them, certifying their participation.
6. Perform all citizenship procedures within the law, as it is written today, using Homeland Security form N-400, (Exception: This program would suspend for one year only, the current Federal Law that does not allow a person who is physically within the U.S. illegally to apply for residency or citizenship). 7. If the applicant is approved, they will become a U.S. citizen. The individual will be convicted of a felony, time served, for coming in illegally. We will proudly welcome each person into their new home, the United States of America.
8. If applicant is not approved or fails to register within the one year registration window, immediate deportation.
9. Any city Mayors and their respective Governor who provides “sanctuary” for illegal immigrants will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the Federal law.
10. Build the border fence that is specified in Public Law 109-295 that became effective 10/4/2006 and secure all of our borders to prevent this threat to our National security from ever happening again.
11. I will order the immediate deployment of armored personnel along our borders sufficient to stop all illegal border activities and to protect the border construction projects.
By utilizing the current regulations and requirements for U.S. citizenship, no person or entity can claim favoritism or discrimination with this solution. The felony conviction will remove the individual’s right to vote or to hold certain public offices. This penalty will also remove the temptation of our political parties and special interest groups from courting and manipulating these individuals as a voting block, rather than respecting them for being the proud new Americans they will become.
Miller for President

It is very sad that the people were not alerted about this descison to make our cities a sanctuary for illegal immigrants. We have to comply with all county, state and federal laws. Why are our taxes used to house them and give them EBT cards and medicaid? Why? Because the powers that be want to take this country down and we are being colonized; paying a deep price for our freedom. It is time to start a radical opposition. Ed S. Santa Fe, NM

On the pages listing cities/states providing sanctuary, you say "sanctuary to illegal immigrants". The proper term is "illegal alien" not immigrant. Hopefully, you will correct your terminology. Edward K. California Retiree

I have been going round and round with my politicians regarding sanctuary cities and illegal immigrants. Diane Feinstien points to the Local and State Government that is their issue. My assemblyman says I need to get the majority leader involved because he is terming out. Do you have plan of action to stop these sanctuary cities? I would love to help. I am a pushy, pushy, woman and very good at it. Sincerely, Eva K.

Received an email from someone that I will let remain anonymous:
“I have been in business in the Forsyth Com, Ga area for 33yrs. Now days I am losing 3 of 5 bids on local jobs to contractors using illegal labor. I am looking for a way to stop these people before I lose everything I have worked for all these years.”
The one sure way to eliminate illegal workers is to not give them jobs. They will quit breaking the law and coming into the US if they weren’t able to find a way to stay here. Illegal immigrants are a tremendous burden to our economy, both directly and indirectly.
You can do your part by asking the businesses you deal with if they use illegal immigrant workers. Recently I heard a story about a person who was going to shingle their house ask those bidding on the project if they used illegals or not. In this part of the country the work is primarily done by illegals. The bid was given to the person insuring a legal crew, although the person paid more to get that insurance.
Insist on legal workers and the unemployment problem will go away and the burden on our economy. This will help those in Georgia as well as everyone else here legally.
Thanks for your mail!

AP – Tuesday, November 03, 2009
LOS ANGELES — Immigration agents assigned to track down people who have ignored deportation orders have increasingly arrested immigrants with criminal records during the past year, new data show.
Data from Immigration and Customs Enforcement show a shift from the prior three years, when more than 70 percent of immigrants arrested by fugitive operations teams had no criminal histories.
About 45 percent of the 35,000 immigrants arrested by the teams during the 2009 fiscal year had criminal convictions. The figure is up from 23 percent during the prior year.
ICE has long claimed it focused on arresting immigrants with criminal convictions who ignored orders from immigration judges to leave the country.
But most people arrested had no criminal histories, which prompted outcries from immigrant rights groups.
ICE director John Morton said earlier this year the agency would focus on finding immigrants with criminal records or who have ignored deportation orders. However, he said other illegal immigrants would be arrested if they were present during the operations,
“The goal is to prevent crime rather than simply to respond to it,” ICE spokesman Brandon Alvarez-Montgomery said.
One reason for the change is that agents are working more closely with local law enforcement to develop leads, ICE spokeswoman Virginia Kice said.
Immigrants rights advocates were skeptical of the numbers and wondered whether the data marked a real change in a program they have long criticized as a source of fear in immigrant neighborhoods.
It’s unclear whether the Obama administration has shifted the program’s focus or whether agents in some regions have just been more successful at finding criminals, said Carl Bergquist, policy advocate for the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles.
“I think the jury is still out,” added Paromita Shah, associate director of the National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild.
Earlier this year, Morton also announced the fugitive teams had stopped using arrest quotas.
Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies in Washington, said agents should have discretion about who they arrest, given what he considers the daunting task of finding more than 500,000 immigrants who have evaded deportation orders.
“They’ve got to start somewhere, and they look for people obviously that have national security issues as well as serious criminals,” said Krikorian, whose organization favors stricter limits on immigration.
“As long as they’re not sending the message that other illegal aliens will simply be let go, then I don’t have a problem with it.” he said.Illegal Immigrant Crimes, Illegal Immigrant News coalition for humane immigrant rights, coalition for humane immigrant rights of los angeles, criminal convictions, criminal histories, deportation orders, humane immigrant rights, illegal immigrants, immigrant neighborhoods, immigration agents, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, immigration judges, john morton, national immigration project, national lawyers guild, operations teams, policy advocate, rights advocates
