Language Access Problems in Immigration Court

Published: Feb 15, 2010 7:00 am By: National Language Access Advocates Network

"The Immigration Courts run by the Executive Office of Immigration Review (“EOIR”) at the Department of Justice are bound by the language access requirements set out in DOJ’s 2002 Guidance to Federal Financial Assistance Recipients Regarding Title VI Prohibition Against National Origin Discrimination Affecting Limited English Proficient (“LEP”) Persons. At a minimum, they must provide competent interpretation for LEP individuals during all courtroom proceedings, and during all critical encounters outside the courtroom. Immigration Courts fall far short of this requirement by failing to provide interpretation for critical encounters, and by providing inaccurate interpretation." -National Language Access Advocates Network (N-LAAN)
