Immigration Courts back off changes to 800 number


Thankfully, the Immigration Courts (also known as the Executive Office for Immigration Review or EOIR) scaled back their proposed changes to the Court 800 information number.

This may have been a bigger deal to immigration lawyers and advocates than to anyone else, but I'm sure any immigration practitioner will tell you how often they can determine what is happening with an immigrants case, including if they have ever been deported (removed) by having reasonable access to the EOIR system via 800-898-7180.

A pat on the back to the EOIR for making a commonsense decision.
