Last year, the President and his immigration deputies announced a plan to review 300,000 immigration removal cases and determine, on an individual basis, whether to administratively close the case. Cases are judged based on a number of factors – but generally meant for those individuals who have acted with good moral character.
Recently the United States announced that it had reviewed about 290,000 cases and had determined that only 7% of the reviewed cases are eligible. 7% equals about 20,000 cases. Only 40 of those 20,000 cases have involved detained individuals.
Is that all the individuals that the review was suppose to help?
