By Daniel Gonzalez

Under Sessions, the Department of Justice is rapidly hiring more immigration judges, while at the same time reducing the hiring process from two years to 10 months, and as little as two months. EOIR is authorized for a total of 484 positions, Montenegro said. There were 7,662 cases pending in the Phoenix immigration court as of the end of August, down 60 percent from a high of 12,216 in fiscal year 2013, according to Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse.
