AILA Doc. No. 18040300 | Dated April 23, 2018
On December 13, 2017, AILA and the American Immigration Council (the Council) filed a FOIA request with the Department of Justice's Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), requesting documents related to the imposition of numeric quotas on immigration judges. We have received several responsive documents (listed in full below), including the "Legal Case Study: Summary Report" dated April 6, 2017. EOIR commissioned Booz, Allen, Hamilton to conduct a year-long legal case study of immigration courts around the country, and the report summarizes the findings of that case study. For more information on AILA's response to the study, see our press release. For more information on changes made by this administration to the immigration courts, see www.aila.org/immigrationcourts.
On February 16, 2018, AILA and the Council received a response to an EOIR FOIA request. The response included EOIR's labor agreement with the National Association of Immigration Judges (NAIJ), updated articles on official time, work schedules, and performance appraisals, and an MOU on NAIJ written and verbal disclaimers.
On April 11, 2018, AILA and the Council received a subsequent response containing a partially redacted copy of a report dated April 6, 2017 and titled "Legal Case Study: Summary Report." The report was written by Booze, Allen, Hamilton after a year-long case study on the U.S. immigration court system. The report summarizes the process of the case study, the key products developed in the study, and the resulting recommendations.
