On December 2, 2019, AILA and the American Immigration Council submitted a follow-up letter to DOJ’s EOIR, OIG, and OPR. This letter follows up on AILA and the Council’s requests related to EOIR’s problematic use of standing orders and requests a status update on any investigations, disciplinary measures, or systematic changes at the El Paso Service Processing Center Immigration Court that are occurring or may have occurred in light of the allegations included in the original complaint.
