A federal appeals court’s decision to delay the deportation of seven illegal immigrants until the Obama administration re-evaluates their cases could encourage thousands of other illegal immigrants to seek similar rulings and could open the door to uncomfortable questions about the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in the U.S, experts said.
The seven people whose deportations the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals halted have no criminal records, but they were ordered deported before the administration announced a new discretion policy last summer.
Last year, Immigration and Customs Enforcement decided to review about 300,000 pending deportation cases and put immigrants with criminal records or who pose a threat to national security at the front of the line for deportation. The rest would be allowed to stay indefinitely.
