Government Fails To Issue “Notices To Appear” To Thousands Of Illegal Alien Minors Apprehended on Southern Border
There is a substantial discrepancy in: the number of “Notice to Appear” receipts being issued to illegal alien juveniles by the Justice Department,: versus: the actual number of apprehensions being reported by: the Border Patrol. According to: National Review Online, fewer than four out of every ten illegal alien juveniles are being processed in: immigration court and no federal official has been able to explain the discrepancy in the data.:
U.S. Customs and Border Protection data show more than 85,000 total apprehensions of unaccompanied alien children during fiscal year 2013 and fiscal year 2014 through June. Information from the same time period provided to National Review Online by the DOJ’s Executive Office for Immigration Review shows 41,592 total receipts marked as juvenile in immigration courts. Kathryn Mattingly, spokesperson for EOIR, tells NRO the receipts refer to new Notices to Appear (NTA) – the document the Department of Homeland Security uses to charge an illegal immigrant with being removable from the United States.
The article continues,
EOIR has recorded 20,814 receipts marked as juvenile in fiscal year 2014 as of June 30, but Border Patrol recorded 57,525 apprehensions of unaccompanied alien children during the same time frame.
Without: being given a requirement to show up again, it’s safe to assume these children won’t be leaving the country any time soon. It’s hard to fathom that this incompetence is anything other than deliberate.
