In response to whistleblower allegations, four Democratic Members of Congress write a letter to AG Sessions to express concerns that DOJ may be blocking the hiring of IJs and Board Members on ideological and political grounds. The letter references the 2008 OSC/OIG report on DOJ politicized hiring of immigration judges and how it found a "systematic use of political or ideological affiliations" in screening candidates for IJ positions.
