A group of special interest lawyers who support illegal immigration are pushing the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to produce a list of immigration judges who are hostile to undocumented immigrants.
The American Immigration Lawyers Association filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with DOJ, asking them to produce a list of all ethics and discrimination complaints brought against immigration judges; now, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has authorized publication of the information.
Bush-era Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez began assessing conduct at the Executive Office for Immigration Review in 2006, when he instituted new training and evaluation procedures for all immigration judges, who are career DOJ employees. That work was continued in 2010 by Attorney General Eric Holder, who established a database for tracking complaints against immigration judges. Complaints may be brought for inappropriate or discriminatory conduct inside or outside of the workplace. Non-frivolous complaints are adjudicated by the Office of the Chief Immigration Judge, which determines what disciplinary action, if any, is merited.
