Associated Press quotes Karen T. Grisez on immigration court reform

Washington, DC litigation special counsel Karen T. Grisez, who is also chair of the ABA Commission on Immigration, is quoted in an Associated Press article about reforming the US immigration courts. With respect to establishing the court as a separate institution outside of the Justice Department, Ms. Grisez commented, "It's really about the independence of the judges. Right now, the attorney general can hire and fire the immigration judges….Judges can be reassigned or disciplined if they're perceived as too lenient or have too many continuances."
