ABA Views on Immigration Courts
February 09, 2010 at 1:36 PM
An article in today’s New York Times discusses the ABA recommendation to create a new and separate (Article I) court system, with both trial and appellate divisions, to handle immigration cases: Julia Preston, Lawyers Back Creating New Immigration Courts. The text of the proposal and related ABA House of Delegates resolutions concerning immigration are available at the ABA website: scroll down to 114A through 114F.
A 1500-page report on the condition of immigration courts, requested by the ABA Commission on Immigration, was released last week: Reforming the Immigration System: Proposals to Promote Independence, Fairness, Efficiency, and Professionalism in the Adjudication of Removal Cases. An executive summary of the report is available online.
