DOJ Has No NTA Receipts For More Than Half Of UACs

From National Review:

Government Has No Receipts for Thousands of Unaccompanied Alien Children

By Ryan Lovelace | August 8, 2014

The Department of Justice does not have receipts for more than half of the unaccompanied alien children apprehended at the southwest border by Border Patrol since the start of fiscal year 2013, government records show.

But don’t worry, they are keeping close tabs on them. And they will make damn sure they will all show up for their deportation hearings.

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.

In other words, the DOJ doesn’t have any record that more than half of the illegal alien children who have been apprehended in the last year were ever given any ‘notices to appear.’ So the illegals have no earthly reason to appear in court. (Which they probably wouldn’t do, in any case.)

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. This means immigration courts have receipts for fewer than four out of every ten unaccompanied alien children apprehended by Border Patrol this fiscal year…

That close enough for government work.

Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, tells NRO it is difficult to determine how much of the discrepancy in apprehensions and receipts appears deliberate and how much resulted because federal officials were overwhelmed with work. “But I think it’s really willful negligence on the part of DHS leadership to allow this already dysfunctional system to become even more overwhelmed,” she says. “It’s just like deliberate chaos.”  

She’s got that right. In fact, it is ‘amnesty through chaos.’ And it was probably ordered from the top.

Immigration courts have completed only 9,630 cases marked as juvenile in fiscal year 2014, government data show, despite more than 20,000 juvenile receipts recorded and more than 57,000 UAC apprehensions made in fiscal year 2014 as of June 30, 2014…

Isn’t it beautiful when a plan comes together?

    “deliberate chaos” — that’s a pretty good description of Nerobama’s entire reign.

    Wasn’t it Sam Francis who first characterized this approach to governance as “anarcho-tyranny”?

    As Francis explained, “What we have in this country today, then, is both anarchy (the failure of the state to enforce the laws [against criminals]) and, at the same time, tyranny — the enforcement of laws by the state [against the innocent] for oppressive purposes….”
