    Mistakes and irregularities have been commonplace in the deportations of many immigrants and there have been "systematic violations" of the basic rights of immigrants, a report presented Thursday revealed.

    The study entitled "Deportation Without Due Process," put together by professors of Stanford Law School and Western State University College of Law and attorneys with the National Immigration Law Center, analyzes thousands of documents obtained under a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

    She said that during the past 10 years, via the stipulated removal program authorities deported more than 160,000 people "without ever giving them their day in court."

    The report emphasized that 96 percent of the people who signed documents agreeing to voluntary deportation never received the advice of a lawyer before doing so.

    "These people had no idea that it was a deportation order that they were signing," argued Karen Tumlin, a lawyer for NILC and co-author of the report.

    She also emphasized that many of the immigrants - the great majority of them Hispanics - did not understand English and could not pay for a lawyer, and thus signing the order violated their basic rights and, in reality, was not voluntary.

    In addition, the investigation found that a script used by immigration agents "is written in broken Spanish, replete with condescending and misleading phrases."

    Jayashri Srikantiah, professor of law and director of the Immigrants' Rights Clinic at Stanford Law School and another coauthor of the report, said that it is necessary to remedy the situation by following the recommendations contained within the study.

    "First of all, Immigration and Customs Enforcement should not allow the alternative 'deportation or jail' to continue being presented to people, especially to those people who do not have legal representation," Srikantiah said.

    Also, the Executive Office for Immigration Review should require that judges hold a hearing in person with the immigrants who do not have an attorney before they sign the voluntary deportation order.

    "ICE should be prohibited from using stipulated removal on vulnerable non-citizens and those with strong ties to the U.S. These include, at a minimum, children, people with mental disabilities, and lawful permanent residents," the report urges.

    According to ICE statistics, in fiscal year 2010, U.S. authorities deported more than 392,000 immigrants, of whom about 195,000 had no previous criminal records.

    Angelhair, I think the problem here lies in that they don't have to give due process or read rights because it is a civil infraction..however, if they charge them with a criminal infraction, even a misdemeanor it means the government spends more because they have to provide them with an attorney, read them their rights and give them a trial by jury....right now the only consequence is deportation...well and exclusion which seems to me should include due process...especially since it seperates families for years.

    Stop them at the border!!! That is the ONLY solution. Stop spending so much money on due process and use that money to secure the border even if it takes the military to do it. Do away with the anchor baby perk - due away with the hiring and mandate E-verify througout the nation. NO more free medical; no more free education; no more free/reduced housing. And most of all no more pandering and treating them like spoiled children. This country continues to create monsters and then does not know what to do with them. When something is your creation and it has failed, you stop the creating. So, stop it !!!! Either this country is a country of laws....or.....it is not!!!

    Day in court? Why should they be allowed a Day in Court? Isn't being in the country illegally enough? If you are in the country illegally they are departable. Period. I don't think Sheriff Joe give them a day unless it is a day to get their affairs in order and leave.

    Illegal immigration and legal resident status separates families for years. Deportation unite families. Children with grand parents and adults with their parents. Some anchor babies have never seen their grand parents or know the land of their ancestors.

    The constitution protects the rights of citizens.

    Furthermore, the constitution is not a suicide pact. Noncitizens without permission to be here have no standing.

    Oh brother.

    "We the People of the United States, ...."

    People who are not citizens are not people of the United States. They are people of another nation and should be returned to that nation when they do not have permission to be here.

    It is OUR constitution. Not the constitution of the world.



    The founding fathers did not foresee that there would be a breed of Americans who would deny common sense and support politicians who would parse the meaning of the word "is". But even if they had tried to dot all their i's and cross all their t's and gaze into a crystal ball to try to accommodate the many ways which addle-minded liberals would try to misunderstand plain language, they still could not have satisfied you.


    The Bill of Rights protects citizens. It does not protect people who are in the custody of the government for transgressing the law and threatening our security.
