Immigration Courts

“Immigration judges, or special inquiry officers, are creatures of statute, receiving some of their powers and duties directly from Congress, and some of them by sub-delegation from the Attorney General.”

- Lopez-Telles v. Immigration and Naturalization Service 

“The backlogs in the immigration courts are too large, but they are, to some degree, explained by the poor policies set by the executive branch in the recent past.”

- Andrew R. Arthur
