"As immigration law teachers and scholars, we write to express our opinion on the scope ofexecutive branch legal authority for the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) to utilizewell-established administrative tools to address the historic backlog of cases pending inimmigration courts. Each case in the backlog involves an immigrant, many waiting for years tohave a “day in court” to defend against charges of removability or to have an application for reliefadjudicated. The Attorney General, through EOIR, has the authority to address the immigrationcourt backlog by rapidly and systemically removing nonpriority cases from the active docket."
