Anyone surprised by this Report: 90% of illegals skip immigration court appearances.

Ninety percent of the mostly-teen illegal immigrants flooding over theMexico-U.S. border won't show up for their immigration court hearing, meaning at least 135,000 of the youths will simply vanish into the country this year alone, according to a key House committee chairman.

House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, who on Wednesday held a hearing to raise national security concerns about the new wave of illegals, revealed Thursday that many of the teens are placed with relatives, including parents who are in the U.S. illegally, and then ignore court orders to appear for immigration hearings.

Once they are picked up by immigration officials, “they are given a court date, expected to return, a year or more later,” said the Virginia lawmaker. “The overwhelming majority of them, more than 90 percent, do not return for their hearings and as a result we have a problem,” he added.

NO!!!!!!  That can't be..

A hearing for what?  We should find out what country they came from and give them a one way ticket back on a military plane.

It's a shame that children and young adults have to immigrate to the US, because their own government does not do anything for them. I wonder where their parents are, what they do, etc. I couldn't live with myself if my children left and tried to cross a border illegally.

What a joke.  Why even bother wasting the resources anymore.  The Feds don't enforce immigration laws, do not support our border states and undermine efforts by US border security patrol agents everyday.  Now in another thread I just read that there has been a confirmed case of the H1N1 in either a child or adult that illegally crossed.

I wouldn't show up either. It's a shame that people, especially kids feel like they can't get a fair shake
