The portion of immigration cases heard in Oklahoma that were closed based on a program that focuses the country's limited deportation resources on removing violent undocumented people from the United States is right in line with the national rate, new federal immigration court data show.

Oklahoma immigration cases are heard in Oklahoma City, where roughly 7 percent of the cases heard there in recent years were closed based on prosecutorial discretion, the same percentage of cases heard nationally that were closed by the same method.

    Deport violent offenders first?

    Sounds sensible, but I'm sure that some will find fault. It's an Obama policy, after all.

    I am not sure I understand why that “headline” was chosen. Is it really a “headline” when it merely proclaims that, if the government does not prosecute as many cases (but instead just “closes” them), it does not spend as much money on prosecutions?
