Brief of Amici Curiae Retired Immigration Judges and Board of Immigration Appeals Members in Support of Petitioners-Appellees
By Alejandro Rodriguez, et al., Petitioners-Appelles , v. Timothy Robbins , et al, On Appeal from the United States District Court for the Central District of California, No. 2:07-cv-03239

Immigration judges strive to manage a high volume o f such complex proceedings with limited resources. As of May 2018, approximately 714,000 cases were pending in U.S. immigration courts, more than triple the caseload of a decade ago. And despite immigration judges’ best efforts, detention produces significant disparities in outcomes, such that immigrants released on bond are significantly more likely to be permitted to remain in the United States.
