Third Immigrant Detainee Dies from COVID
By Max Siegelbaum

A record number of immigration judges quit their jobs last year, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (at Syracuse University. Across the country, 35 judges fled the courts in 2019. There were 27 departures in 2019 and 20 in 2017. These judges are rapidly being replaced by others hired under the Trump administration; nearly two-thirds of currently serving judges started in FY 2017. “The record judge turnover means the court is losing its most experienced judges — judges whose services would be of particular value in helping mentor the large number of new immigration judges now joining the court’s ranks,” TRAC reported.
