The Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) is an agency within the Department of Justice.  Under delegated authority from the Attorney General, immigration judges and the Board of Immigration Appeals interpret and adjudicate immigration cases according to United States immigration laws.  EOIR's immigration judges conduct administrative court proceedings in immigration courts located throughout the nation.  They determine whether foreign-born individuals -- whom the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) charges with violating immigration law -- should be ordered removed from the United States or should be granted relief from removal and be permitted to remain in this country.  The Board of Immigration Appeals primarily reviews appeals of decisions by immigration judges.  EOIR's Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Officer adjudicates immigration-related employment cases.  EOIR is committed to ensuring fairness in all of the cases it adjudicates.
