Without any explanation, the Department of Justice stopped posting its “Immigration Litigation Bulletin” online in mid-2016. The older versions are online here. The Immigration Litigation Bulletin is a publication by the Department of Justice’s “Office of Immigration Litigation” which summarizes recent cases, discusses trends in adjudications, statistics, and long-term developments in the law. It’s an incredibly valuable resource for people who want to know more about what is happening behind the scenes.
I filed a FOIA request in January seeking all Immigration Litigation Bulletins going back to July, 2016 (when they stopped posting them online). This afternoon I received some of them (January, 2017 is missing, so we’ll appeal). I’ll also be filing another FOIA request for the Immigration Litigation Bulletins for the first half of 2018 and will post them where when I receive them.
