WASHINGTON (AP) — Immigrants facing deportation are increasingly finding success in immigration courts.
According to the Transactional Records Clearinghouse at Syracuse University, which collects and studies federal prosecution records, nearly half of immigrants facing deportation have won their cases in the last year.
The government has been losing more deportation cases each year since 2009.
The analysis does not say how many deportation cases Immigration and Customs Enforcement, whose lawyers represent the government in immigration courts, successfully appealed to the Board of Immigration Appeals.
Transactional Records Clearinghouse reports that since the start of the 2014 budget year in October, immigration judges ruled in favor of immigrants in about half of the 42,816 cases heard. In 2013, the government won about 52 percent of cases.
