Judges being Hired and Cases Moving up at the Arlington Immigration Court
The Arlington Immigration Court is aiming to hire 16 Immigration Judges by the end of 2017. There are currently 8 Immigration Judges. Construction is also underway to expand the size of the Court to include a total of 16 courtrooms. Two additional nonpublic facing courtrooms for video hearings will also be added. The Arlington Immigration Court currently has almost 30,000 cases. With the planned expansion and hiring of judges, matters set out for hearings from 2020 until 2023 are being re-calendared to earlier dates. If you have a case scheduled beyond 2020, you should expect it to be moved up to an earlier date.
