“In a move that could shake up the U.S. immigration system, the Department of Homeland Security is going to begin reviewing all 300,000 pending deportation cases in federal immigration courts to determine which individuals meet specific criteria for removal and to focus on “our highest priorities.” DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano said the review will enhance public safety. “Immigration judges will be able to more swiftly adjudicate high priority cases, such as those involving convicted felons,” Napolitano wrote Thursday in a letter to assistant majority leader Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, and 21 other senators including Indiana Republican Richard Lugar.” CNN, Aug. 18, 2011.

This move is welcome by our law firm. Often, immigrants are placed in deportation on “uneccessary” grounds. Many immigrants ultimately win their cases outside the courts because such cases are granted by the USCIS for example in some adjustment of status cases. Not only it is costly on the immigrants but also on the judicial system. By reducing such a load on the immigration court, the administration is effectively cutting the costs.
