SERIOUS ERRORS REPORTED IN BIDEN’S ASYLUM PROGRAM. At the end of the month, the alarming numbers that UCLA Law compiled regarding the asylum program that the Biden Administration put in place to “obtain a fair and speedy process” were release. They point out that “justice” is missing from the program.
Everything seems to indicate that people are not receiving due process regarding their asylum claims and in most cases they end in immediate deportation. In the study carried out by UCLA LAW, they pointed out that 99 percent of the cases completed, received a deportation order, contradicting the president’s words.
UCLA LAW REVEALS ALARMING FIGURES
At the end of the month, the alarming figures of the asylum program established by the Biden-Harris administration were released, where there seem to be serious errors in their “fast and fair program”. UCLA Law discovered that 99% of cases end in immediate deportation.
“99.1% of all cases completed as of February 1, 2022 on the Dedicated Docket in Los Angeles, resulted in deportation orders,” reads the report presented by UCLA Law, on the asylum program that Joe Biden recently established. The alarming figures and serious errors have put the popular program under the spotlight.
Errors in cases of minors?
On behalf of UCLA Law, it was announced that the report showed serious errors in the processes of the new immigration program. They pointed out that several problems have arisen for people seeking asylum and even for the hundreds of children who never got “their day in court.”
“A report released today reveals gross miscarriages of justice in the expedited immigration court docket established by the Biden administration for families seeking asylum, including the deportation of several hundred children who never had their day in court,” UCLA Law said.

No legal representation?
UCLA Law revealed that the study shows how the accelerated process imposed by the Biden-Harris administration leaves families vulnerable and without the possibility of obtaining legal support. For that reason, it is believed that people end up in an expedited deportation process, since there is no one to defend their interests.
The study finds that “that the sped-up process, known as “Dedicated Dockets,” leaves already vulnerable families in the dark, without lawyers to help them, and has ended in an order of deportation for 99.1% of those with completed cases” indicated the report shared by UCLA Law.

How many people end up without a lawyer?
The study revealed that at least 70% of people have found themselves in a complicated situation, because they do not have the necessary legal help to face their asylum application in court. But, if that number is worrying, it is alarming to know that there are a higher number of people who do not show up for their hearing.
“70.1% of those listed in the Los Angeles Docket don’t have lawyers; 72.4% of deportation orders were issued in absentia, that is, immigrant families never had their day in court,” indicated the study carried out by UCLA Law, in Los Angeles, one of the 11 cities which carry out such processes.
A bad accelerated process?
In recent statements, Talia Inlender, deputy director of the Center for Immigration Law and Policy and co-instructor of the Immigrant Rights Policy Clinic at the UCLA School of Law, stated that the investigation showed that the majority of families, including young children, are going through an accelerated judicial process without the help of any lawyer.
“Our research finds that the vast majority of families, including many young children, are facing an expedited court process without lawyers, that nearly every case completed in the first six months of the Docket resulted in a deportation order, that most of those families had no lawyer, and that the majority never even made it to court,” said Talia Inlender, deputy director of the Center for Immigration Law and Policy.
