A New York Times analysis of internal government records shows that since President Obama took office, two-thirds of the nearly two million deportation cases in immigration court involve people who had committed minor infractions, including traffic violations, or had no criminal record at all. Twenty percent — or about 394,000 — of the cases involved people convicted of serious crimes, including drug-related offenses, the immigration court records show.  The immigration courts are backlog with so many deportation cases and some immigration court judges take 3-4 years to complete a deportation case.  It is important for immigrants to remember to seek an immigration lawyer if required to appear in immigration court.
