Better Court Appearance Rate for Child Migrants in 2014

Immigration Surge

July 17th, 2014


 

Much attention has been given to the child migrant surge. Some worry that child migrants would be deprived of due process. Some are more worried that child migrants would simply abscond because many children were not detained prior to their immigration hearings. Regardless of concerns, officials and citizens turn to court appearance rate of child migrants, a helpful index, to measure effectiveness of immigration system in this matter.

According to TRAC, a data analysis hub run by Syracuse University, about 60%-70% of children do appear in court as scheduled. The graph below shows that while the skip-out rate declines, 31% of all sampled cases were still decided absentia—with the children absent.

TRAC DATA

Overall, 43% of all cases are with attorneys, among which 47% of child migrants stay. Out of 57% of all cases, those without attorneys, only 10% of the children stayed. Typically, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) seeks removal order from the courts. The courts in turn consider possible reliefs, especially for abused, abandoned or neglected children. Though DHS may move to close cases and allow children to stay, attorneys’ assistance appear to be critical before DHS moves so.

There is improvement, but slight, while immigration trends remain ever dynamic.
