DOJ redacts all the relevant facts and law in all 58 remand decisions of Immigration Judge Barry Pettinato

I’m speechless. I hope this is is a mistake.

If it is not a mistake, the leadership in the Department of Justice has commandeered EOIR to unlawfully withhold information on…everything.

Almost all the cites to BIA and Circuit Court decisions are redacted under the (b)(6) exemption, which is supposed to protect private personal information. The title to a published BIA decision is about as far from personal information as it gets.

Further, all of the relevant facts underlying the decisions are redacted. One literally cannot determine, at all, what happened in any of the cases, and why the BIA remanded the case.

See for yourself:
