Study: Goodling’s partisan immigration judges more frequently rule against asylum-seekers.

A new analysis of immigration judges shows that those appointed through the illegal, partisan process created by Monica Goodling and Kyle Sampson have “ruled against asylum-seekers significantly more often than colleagues who were appointed, as the law requires, under politically neutral rules.” Thirty-one judges were appointed under the illegal vetting process, and 28 of those remain; one was recently promoted by Attorney General Michael Mukasey to serve on the the Board of Immigration Appeals.
