Preach It, Brother

Immigration judges have too much discretion and not enough oversight. The lack of a meaningful appeals process and the removal of judicial review for many, many of their decisions has bred abuses that ought to outrage us-- but they don't because for most of us, it's something that has no impact on everyday life, and because many people have the knee-jerk reaction of "well, just go back where you came from, then" without giving any thought at all to whether the results are fair or just. What this says about us as a nation, I am afraid to ponder for too long.
