Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” Jessica Vaughan from the Centers for Immigration Studies reported that nine out of 10 illegal immigrants who streamed across the U.S.-Mexico border over the summer are not showing up for their court dates.
“What a huge mistake it was for all of these people that surged across the border to be released instead of being kept in custody in the border zone,” Vaughn said. “These people had no intention of applying for refugee or asylum status. They wanted to come and join their friends and family who are here legally. It shows the Obama administration really didn’t have any intention of dealing with these new illegal arrivals, swiftly or firmly. They were quite all right with just letting them all go, knowing they are not going to be the priority for enforcement, but become the problem of the communities in which they settled.”
