NYT on Immigration Courts, Immigration Judges, Case Quotas and Due Process

Liz Robbins writes in the New York Times about the Department of Justice's new case completion quotas for immigration judges to complete 700 cases each year, which are scheduled to go into effect October 1. The article also discusses the high level of retirements amongst IJs in recent months, as well as the selection of a new chief judge for the New York immigration court (a Las Vegas immigration judge with "an 86.5 percent denial rate of asylum claims, which made him the most lenient of the four judges in Las Vegas.")  Professors David Martin and Michael Kagan are quoted in the piece as well.
