Immigration Judges Facing Performance Reviews

In the New York Times there is an article by Nina Bernstein, August 10, 2006;

"WASHINGTON, Aug. 9 — Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales warned the nation’s 215 immigration judges on Wednesday that they all faced annual performance evaluations for the first time and regular scrutiny to detect high reversal rates, frequent complaints or unusual backlogs. But the consequences of failing were not spelled out. And some of the judges said they worried that evaluations would increase pressure on all judges to make decisions faster, without weeding out the handful of judges who have drawn the most criticism".
