Immigration Courts

In the entire United States, there are fifty-nine Immigration Courts and more than 260 Immigration Judges given the responsibility of deciding on the removability of an immigrant and the rule on applications pertaining to relief from removal, such as for political asylum, adjustment of status, cancellation of removal, and waivers among other things. The decisions made by the judges are usually set in stone unless the case is appealed or certified to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) in a timely fashion. There might also be a chance of reopening or reconsidering the case if something such as new evidence appears or related law changes.
