The union for Immigration Judges has declared jihad on President Donald J. Trump and Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III. In response to the supervision of a recalcitrant, insubordinate, and lazy member of their union, Steven Morley, the National Association of Immigration Judges (NAIJ) declared that they are independent of supervision and could do anything they well please. While it's filled with platitudes, the real import of the NAIJ grievance in the case of Morley is to challenge the immigration policy of the Trump Administration, which as minor officials under the supervision of the Attorney General, and beholden to the President for their authority, they have no right to do. If they don’t like implementing the Trump Administration policies, they can go find work elsewhere....

The solution to the problem of kritarchy in the EOIR and insubordinate “Immigration Judges” is to take them down a peg. Eliminate the title and robes of a judge, return those employees reviewing immigration law decision to Special Inquiry Officers, and make it certain they are Executive Branch employees subordinate to the President and the Attorney General.
