The Justice Department will not issue evaluations of immigration judges based on how many cases they close a year the Washington Post reported here:
“That is a huge, huge, huge encroachment on judicial independence,” said Dana Leigh Marks, spokeswoman and former president of the association and a judge for more than 30 years. “It’s trying to turn immigration judges into assembly-line workers.”
Gee, ya think?
One of the smartest Judges ever to wear a robe in the REGJB- the late Judge Philip Knight, closed three cases before 8 Am. We're not kidding. Judge Knight would have his clerks bring the calendar and files the night before. He would get to chambers early in the morning and read every file and motion and by the time court started he was ready to hear arguments, issue rulings and try cases. He had the lowest case load of any judge in the REGJB. And he was a heck-of-a-nice guy to boot. And he didn't need any quotas to do his job superbly well.
Meanwhile, cheers to an independent media:

From Occupied America, where the right-wing media has been turned, fight the power of propaganda.
