Some Immigrants Meet Harsh Face of Justice

There is an article in the Los Angeles Times about complaints of insensitive -- even abusive -- conduct by some U.S. immigration judges that have prompted a broad federal review.

By Ann M. Simmons, Times Staff Writer;

"The complaints about immigration judges were alarming.

In San Francisco, a U.S. citizen was wrongly deported to Mexico after a judge failed to verify the authenticity of his birth certificate and tax records — actions that drew harsh criticism from a federal appeals court.

In Chicago, an appellate board found that a political asylum case involving an Albanian citizen was mishandled because the judge relied on testimony from a document expert who did not speak or read Albanian".
