Posted on 07/24/2014 3:36:29 PM PDT by Resettozero
Judge Michael Baird of the federal Dallas Immigration Court said on July 22 that 18 of the children whose cases he was scheduled to hear on that day didnt show up for court. The unaccompanied children were among 20 from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala who were set to appear in Bairds court for initial deportation hearings.
The Dallas Morning News cited Bairds statement describing the absentee rate that day as highly unusual so high that he reset the hearings for August 11 rather than possibly issuing a deportation order.
Baird said he was concerned that the children may not have received proper notice of the hearings from the federal government. Attorney Lynn Javier of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security agreed that it was prudent to reset the hearings, the Dallas paper reported.
Testifying before the Senate Homeland Security Committee studying the illegal immigration crisis on July 9, Juan Osuna, director of the Executive Office of Immigration Review at the Department of Justice, said that about 46 percent of all children, whether accompanied or unaccompanied, who are apprehended by authorities fail to show up for hearings before immigration judges.
The New York Post reported that Osuna told the committee that his office did not have completely accurate data for the court appearance rate for the unaccompanied children, so the non-appearance rate could be even higher.
Osuna noted that even minors who obey the law face lengthy waits inside the United States because immigration courts are overloaded with a record 375,000 cases. We are facing the largest caseload that the agency has ever seen, Osuna testified before the committee.

No **it. I’m shocked.
Maybe Glenn Beck and Juan McCain can post their bail.
Meanwhile what are our fearless legislators and law enforcement doing about the ongoing invasion?
They need the shadows to escape the heat.
This Judge can't understand that he is being scammed by a bunch of permiso jumping illegals who have zero intention of showing up for their hearing and have instead taken flight to avoid being caught again
well , D’oh
So send some of the many lay-arounds who “work” in the many Fed departments out to find them. Arrest the illegal alien invaders and deport them. Unfortunately, our government is apparently full of traitors to America.
But they promised to show up...
Don't you know it's hard for toddlers to crawl out of their high-chairs, start up their big wheels, and dodge traffic to make their hearing?
What kind of a monster are you? < /S >
HELL NO...illegal scumbag aliens!
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Because that makes SO much sense.
I cry for what my children have lost because of this filthy, illegitimate regime. I cry for what they'll never even understand they've lost!
I suspect that after their hearing dates were set the “children” were moved to other parts of the country.
