The Justice Department sent an email to all employees of U.S. immigration courts this week that included a link to an article from a white nationalist website attacking immigration court judges. BuzzFeed News reports the email, sent by the Justice Department’s Executive Office for Immigration Review, featured a link to a blog post on the site VDARE using an anti-Semitic slur to attack the judges. Justice Department officials blamed a “third-party vendor” for including the link to the racist article, telling BuzzFeed the department condemns anti-Semitism “in the strongest terms.” This comes as Trump’s Justice Department is seeking to decertify the union representing immigration court judges. The union has been protesting the strict quotas placed on judges, expecting them to process 700 cases a year and tying job performance evaluations to how quickly they close cases.
