Slightly Fewer Immigration Appeals Countrywide

The Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts recently informed Congress that the number of appeals it is receiving was slightly less last year from the year before, reflecting a slight decrease in immigration appeals (along with a decrease in appeals in criminal cases). That information is based on nationwide figures, and does not necessarily reflect the situation with the Third Circuit. For example, the National Law Journal quoted a Ninth Circuit judge as saying any slowdown countrywide is not true for the Ninth Circuit, which has an increase in immigration appeals. So it looks like the existence of this blog is safe for now, with a continuing flow of immigration appeals being filed with the Third Circuit. In fact, the judiciary will ask Congress for 67 new judgeships to handle the large number of cases.
