EOIR Director Condoned Immigration Judge V. Stuart Couch Misconduct Against Victims of Domestic Violence
A partial FOIA release today shows that Immigration Judge V. Stuart Couch directly e-mailed EOIR Director James McHenry regarding his overt defiance of the BIA’s order to him to grant or deny asylum to a victim of domestic violence. Director McHenry’s response to Couch?
Thanks. Let me know as soon as you hear from the BIA.
This release is only partial given that EOIR must consult with the main Department of Justice prior to releasing communications made between IJ Couch and individuals in DOJ leadership.
