Immigration Courts Still Broken

The nation's 225 immmigration judges and the 17 judges on the Board of Immigration Appeals are still doing a miserable job, as chronicled by the St. Petersburg Times. As a result of deficient decision making, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeal have seen appeals from the BIA to the federal courts go from 3% of the caseload to 17%. Most of this disaster is the fault of the actions of former attorney general John Ashcroft.
