U.S. Immigration Courts Criticized

Immigration judges hear deportation cases in about 120 locations nationwide. They prioritize cases in which a foreign national is detained for a crime or other reason, and such cases lasted 48 days on average, according to a sample reviewed by the inspector general. Cases in which the person was not detained went on for an average of 526 days, the report said. Of the 12 million undocumented immigrant it is well known that a majority of them are Hispanic. The non-detainee cases included people asking for asylum. By Reuters, Published: November 1, 2012 Washington Post. Even though there were more immigration judges, the completed cases dropped from 2006 by 53,000 reported in 2010, according to General Michael E. Horowitz.
The immigration Department complained that they did not have funds to improve the services.

Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz, in a 74-page report, said the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), which decides whether illegal immigrants should be removed from the country, and adjudicates cases involving undocumented workers have failed to keep up with its caseload despite a $302.3 million budget and more than 1,500 personnel, including 238 judges. By Jerry Seper Thursday, November 1, 2012 Washington Post. That is a lot of funding. Swifter paperwork and eliminating forms that (a) are repetitious and (b) you do not need a college degree to understand would be a step in the right direction. The system needs and overhaul.
