The Biden government has removes artificial quotas for immigration,
Artificial quotas for immigration judges,
But urged further action to rescind other Trump-era policies,
Which continue to undercut the integrity and independence of our migrant courts.
The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA)
Welcomed news that the Biden government has removed the artificial quotas imposed on migrant judges by the Trump government.
The Trump government had imposed case completion quotas as part of the performance review process for migrant judges,
Requiring them to finish 700 cases per year or face disciplinary action. Judges argued that the quotas valued expediency over due process and was not an appropriate metric to evaluate judges.
