Hispanic Lawmakers Question DOJ On Immigrant Case Info
By Christopher Cole

"Reliable public data of court operations is an essential characteristic of any court system," according to the Hispanic Caucus members. "Any mismanagement or manipulation of immigration court data only further undermines the public's confidence in the fundamental fairness of an immigration court system that is under the control of the [DOJ]." The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse has repeatedly relayed its concerns to EOIR about "severe irregularities" contained in EOIR's data sets, including in the number of applications for relief, they said. "Rather than addressing the documented deficiencies in the data, the number of deleted records continue to rise at alarming rates," according to the letter, signed by prominent Democrats including Reps. Tony Cárdenas of California and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York
