Executive Office for Immigration Review
Releases FY 2010 Statistical Year Book

Book Includes Pending Caseload Numbers for the Immigration Courts

FALLS CHURCH, Va-- The Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) today announced the release of its Fiscal Year 2010 Statistical Year Book. The book is a compilation of figures and tables that provides meaningful data on aliens who appeared before an immigration judge or the Board of Immigration Appeals during the previous fiscal year. It examines the data on the alien respondents’ cases by nationality, language, and disposition, and provides a window into asylum cases. EOIR also announced that, in addition to the standard information, this year’s book includes national pending caseload numbers for the immigration courts.

“I am confident that the public will find the Fiscal Year 2010 Statistical Year Book to be even more useful than past editions,” said Acting Director Juan Osuna. “In addition to all of the information included in prior years, the immigration courts’ pending caseload statistics provide even greater transparency into the agency’s work.”

Hard copies of the publication are not currently available to the public, but a user-friendly version is available at

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 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.
