The high number of deportation orders has raised alarm among immigrant advocates, who say many of those children were never notified of their hearing date because of problems with the immigration court system.

In interviews and court documents, attorneys said notices sometimes arrived late, at the wrong address or not at all. In some cases, children were ordered to appear in a court near where they were initially detained, rather than where they were living, attorneys said.

“What was a border crisis has now become a due process crisis,” said Wendy Young, president of Kids in Need of Defense, an advocacy group.

    Maybe if we made our immigration process easier and less costly, this wouldn’t have happened. Not that it should be happening now. These are kids we’re talking about. No matter what, it is wrong to deport kids.

    Also, these kids will have jobs and grow up someday. That means they
    will make money, buy insurance, buy a house, etc, and when they do we
    can tax them. If we tax them, we can make money off of them. Even if
    they don’t pay their taxes, we can still make money off of them since
    they will have to purchase things. Guess where that money goes. The
    government. So by deporting them, we lose money.
