The Executive Office of Immigration Review today released data on orders of removal, voluntary departures, and final decisions for the first six months of the Trump Administration.
The data released for Feb. 1, 2017 – July 31, 2017 is as follows:
Total Orders of Removal : 49,983
Up 27.8 percent over the same time period in 2016 (39,113)
Total Orders of Removal and Voluntary Departures : 57,069
Up 30.9 percent over the same time period in 2016 (43,595)
Total Final Decisions : 73,127

Pursuant to President Trump’s Jan. 25 Executive Order, “Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements,” the Department of Justice mobilized over one hundred existing Immigration Judges to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) detention facilities across the country. Over 90 percent of these cases have resulted in orders requiring aliens to depart or be removed from the United States. The Justice Department has also hired 54 additional Immigration Judges since President Trump took office, and continues to hire new Immigration Judges each month.
