Whistleblowers allege DOJ blocks hiring of IJs and Board Members on ideological and political grounds

  1. Date Announced

    April 17, 2018

    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.
