The number of deportation cases filed by federal immigration officials dropped by nearly a third in the first three months of the fiscal year, according to a report by the Syracuse University Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse.

The drop recorded in the last three months of 2011 may reflect the Obama administration's plan to focus its deportation efforts by weighing a variety of discretionary factors, including whether the person is a veteran, came to the U.S. as a child or is a college student, according to the report. But experts said it's too soon to say if deportations overall will decline.

From October through December, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement initiated 39,331 deportation cases in immigration court, down from 58,639 the previous quarter, the report says. Filings are typically lower during the holiday months, but even adjusted for the seasonal drop-off the numbers are significantly lower, according to the authors.

The deportation numbers are stictly for PR purposes. but what they do show is the Obama Administration have given up deporting and are most likely looking to give them all amnesty as they have realized it is meaningless to try deport them without a secure border. Anyone legally deported will ILLEGALLY come back before the ink is dry on the deportation orders as long as the Administration and Congress are not willing to GET SERIOUS ABOUT SECURING THE BORDER :x .
