Immigration and the CourtsImmigration and the Courts
February 20, 2009, 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM
The Justice Department’s immigration courts have been the object of attention not only for how their judges have been selected but also for their heavy caseloads and shortage of resources, including the inadequacy of legal representation available to aliens. On February 20, Brookings Visiting Fellow Russell Wheeler will moderate a discussion with Robert A. Katzmann, who has served since 1999 as a Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit; Juan P. Osuna, who chairs the Justice Department’s Board of Immigration Appeals; and Andrew I. Schoenholtz, professor of law at the Georgetown University Law Center and deputy director of Georgetown University’s Institute for the Study of International Migration.
