Immigration Courts: Still A Troubled InstitutionPublished: Jul 2, 2009 By: TRAC Source: My Source
"A broad three-year Justice Department project to make the Immigrations Courts fairer and more effective has not achieved many of its specific goals, according to a point-by-point analysis by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC). The partial failure of the ambitious project started by the Bush Administration in August 2006 leaves many problems for the Obama Administration and Congress to confront. The TRAC analysis examines each of the 22 steps that former Attorney General Gonzales listed in his program to improve the operations of the special court and judges -- which of them have been completed and which have not."
