Deportation orders up under Trump, fewer prevail in immigration court

8-8-17 Federal immigration courts ordered 57,069 people to leave the US in the first 6 months of the Trump administration, up nearly 31% over the same period last year.
Additionally, 16,058 people prevailed in their immigration cases, or had them closed, allowing them to stay in the United States, according to the data, which tallied orders issued from Feb. 1 to July 31. That total marked a 20.7% drop from the 20,255 immigrants who prevailed at the same time last year.
