REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – A new study from Syracuse University shows that about half of immigrants facing deportation in the United States are now winning their cases before an immigration judge.

Judges reportedly ruled in favor of immigrants in about half of more than 40,000 deportation cases heard; the highest success rate in more than two decades.

The study shows that more immigrants won their deportation cases in California, New York, and Oregon.

Meantime, a new Gallup poll shows that more Americans are shifting priorities when it comes to immigration.

More Americans, 44 percent, say the US should develop a plan to legalize undocumented immigrants.

While 43 percent say the top priority should be border security.

    Correct count of illegals is about 20-30Million . If illegals are given amnesty it will BANKRUPT America.
    Study shows that, for every illegal given amnesty, they will bring-in with them 2 -3 or more member of their family. This 2-3 members will resort on social services, like food stamps, free educations, free housing, healthcare etc…Where will the Federal gov’t get the money to take care of them , will borrow from China? .Who will pay for the social services, YOU the hardworking American citizen/ immigrant. Top priority is close the border,….95% Latino and 5% Asian. Obama regime 50M on food stamps, then give amnesty to illegal? You will add another 50M food stamps,….. this is the end of America…..

      @Joey, Most countries have laws that control entry into their country, We do too, but our elected officials seem to think they have the authority to just do as they want regardless of what the law says or the impact it will have. Obama recently relaxed citizenship laws for those who have ties to terrorism. That was the icing on the cake .

        If you are so enamored with the immigration laws of other countries, then why don’t you move there!

      @Dewey, That maybe true , our ancestor’s did came as immigrants ,but not the way Illegals are doing now. Immigrants follow the law. Not following Immigration Law is a federal crime. They are illegal aliens, criminal trespassers, invaders, enemies of Our Republic. Any aid or comfort tendered to them is treason according to The Constitution, Article III Section 3.

      Today’s Illegal’s have broken into our country and into our house , and liberals say they deserve keys to the house, the car, and they have the right to our paychecks, There is a difference between charity and stupidity.

        Our ancestors came and “conquered” lands with the notion that natural rights supercedes that of legal rights. Without this notion, it is thievery just to steal lands by European invaders from the native people all over the world for settlement, don’t you think? And the promised land that God has for the Jews? In the Declaration of Indpendence, Thomas Jefferson said, “….that ALL MEN are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Do you know why that is Delia? If you are Christian and read the bible, you should…
