The Dallas Morning News is reporting that 20 illegal-alien children were schedule for a court hearing in Dallas on Tuesday, but 18 didn't show up. The report confirms fears that many of the newly-arrived illegal aliens, if released across the country, will simply disappear and not show up for the court hearings.
The 20 illegal aliens were from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, the three primary senders of Unaccompanied Alien Children during the ongoing crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border. The federal government expects more than 90,000 to illegally enter the country during the 2014 fiscal year. The judge called the number of no-shows highly unusual and has rescheduled the hearings for mid-August.
According to recent testimony from a Justice Department official, approximately 46% of illegal aliens don't show up for the schedule court dates.
