The truth is finally out that the Obama administration was actually cooking the books on illegal immigration cases. If you can take 200,000 cases and just close them administratively, you can make the issue appear much smaller than it actually is. That would be expedient not only politically for President Obama, but it would make his legacy slightly less tarnished. Now that means that when the numbers are tallied up, the total number of known illegals goes up another huge amount. In keeping with his desire to assist illegal immigration, President Obama in November 2014 issued a series of executive orders that granted amnesty to about 5 million illegals, or nearly half of the estimated 10.5 million to 11 million now in the country. The federal courts have thus far blocked his actions as unconstitutional, and the Supreme Court, which deadlocked on the issue previously. Six states are home to the majority of the unauthorized population. As of 2014, 21 percent of the nation’s unauthorized population lived in California; 15 percent lived in Texas; 8 percent lived in Florida; 7 percent lived in New York; 5 percent lived in New Jersey, and 4 percent lived in Illinois.
As Written by Paul Bedard for the Washington Examiner:
During the Obama era up to 200,000 deportation cases were “administratively closed” without action, a move that left tens of thousands of illegal immigrants free to roam America, sometimes indefinitely, according to a new report.
When added to those cases still pending court action, it brings the backlog of cases to about 800,000, far more than previously known.
In the report for the Center for Immigration Studies,former immigration judge Andrew R. Arthur said that there are some 100,000 cases that were closed, but told Secrets that it could be as high as 200,000.
“My back-of-the-envelope calculations suggest at least 100,000 more are possible, for 200,000 on top of the 600,000 we currently have,” said Arthur.
