EOIR and COVID - DOJ OIG Report

DOJ OIG, Apr. 2021

Limited-Scope Review of the Executive Office for Immigration Review’s Response to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 Pandemic

"EOIR has had to balance difficult, sometimes conflicting challenges presented by the pandemic. We found that EOIR took some actions to help mitigate the risk of COVID-19 for staff and parties to immigration proceedings but various factors limited the efficacy of these efforts. Although some of the factors fell outside EOIR’s control, we identified shortcomings in decisions and practices on the part of EOIR that hindered its response."
