Executive Office for Immigration Review Releases FY 2014 Statistics Yearbook

FALLS CHURCH, Va. - The Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) today announced the release of its Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 Statistics Yearbook.

The book is a representation of data that EOIR tracked and compiled during the previous fiscal year. As in previous years, the figures and tables contained within the book examine respondents' cases by nationality, language, and disposition, and provide detailed information surrounding asylum cases.

"The annual publication of the Statistics Yearbook is one way in which EOIR works to provide transparency into the agency's daily work," said EOIR Director Juan P. Osuna. "We believe that providing our stakeholders with this tool allows for an improved understanding about agency policies and procedures."

Hard copies of the publication are not available to the public, but a user-friendly version is available at http://www.justice.gov/eoir/statspub/fy14syb.pdf.

 

- EOIR -

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.
