No precedential immigration decisions in a while

The Third Circuit issues two types of decisions: precedential decisions and non-precedential. Precedential decisions are binding on the lower courts and on immigration courts that are located within the Third Circuit.

It's been almost a month since the Third Circuit last issued a precedential immigration decision. What's going on? A sudden shift toward non-precedential decisions? A lull in the action perhaps?

In any case, we are still monitoring the Third Circuit for new precedential decisions. It's just that their immigration decisions lately have all been non-precedential...

I don't think most Americans understand their own immigration laws and how just or unjust these laws are. My story is a clear example, where I have found most Americans bewildered about it, and yet this is *their* law, even if they're ignorant about it. Benevolence is is great; but, ignorant benevolence is depressing.
