I don't want to give anybody false hope but this is definitely a piece of news that makes us immigration attorneys feel happy about it.
Trasviña encouraged ICE prosecutors to consider mitigating factors, like whether the defendant has strong family ties in the U.S., their work history, or other contributions to their community. Cases can also be dismissed if a defendant serves in the military or has a family member who does.
They are also asked to consider whether someone might gain legal status through other methods, particularly since many people with cases before the immigration court have also applied for some sort of status to remain in the country through U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
Finally some human attitudes towards immigrants and their families. The backlog now is insane and it's something that drives people crazy.
