Immigration Courts Impacted by Server Crash

Rate this Entry
As of April 12, 2014, five servers crashed crippling the entire network of computers used by the Nation's immigration courts. This has cut off access to electronic records, and has shut down the toll-free number that enables immigrants to check the status of their case.

I received a report today that some detained cases have already had to be rescheduled due to the hardware failure. The concern is that individuals will be forced to languish in custody depriving them of their right to due process. EOIR spokeswoman Lauren Alder Reid addressed this concern stating that "EOIR is not making any decisions regarding the release of detainees outside of normal court processes.

I was in Court this morning at the Buffalo Federal Detention Facility in Batavia, New York. The immigration judge I appeared before was able to conduct my hearing, and offered me a trial date within one week.

I'll let you know more as information becomes available.
