Is the Government Deleting Immigration Court Records?
By TCR Staff

Over one million records of U.S. immigration cases are missing from the database held by the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), and the agency appears unwilling to explain what happened, the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) charged Thursday. TRACTRAC, a nonprofit data-crunching group established at Syracuse University in 1989, said the agency’s failure to address the problem despite repeated requests has persuaded it to make a rare public complaint “about the lack of commitment within the agency to responsible data management.” TRAC charged that EOIR did not respond to its discovery of “gross irregularities” in the agency’s recent data releases.
