Acting Head of EOIR Given Permanent Position

January 17, 2018

James McHenry has been named the Director of the Executive Office for Immigration Review, which processes immigration cases and appeals. The agency has experienced a large backlog in recent years. In Fiscal year 2016, for example, the agency received over 328,000 cases but only completed a little over 273,000. The Trump administration is hoping to decrease this by appointing 60 new judges.
