Dear Editor:
Thanks for publishing the link about the immigration judge who was removed from his functions this week in Boston, MA. It is a clear fact that if we investigate each immigration judge working today in our immigration courts in the US, we will find some with prejudice and racism in their character. Some may argue that this is a necessary evil after 9/11, but that concerns me a great deal, because we should not gamble with human lives, when we want to be seen as a nation that care about freedom and justice for all. I hope that the Boston incident will open the door for a closer look at some immigration judges across the US, and a more in depth evaluation of their performance be done ASAP, so we can get some credibility back to our immigration justice system. I understand that after 9/11 there is some kind of "look at the other way" attitude, and the nomination of some judges after that date, clearly shows the intention of a radical approach for the immigration courts. That probably encourage the Boston judge to feel comfortable in his "absolute power" to lower his guard and show his real character in front the physician who is an American citizen with the integrity to stand against his pseudo-power to make fun of people in need of our justice system. I hope we will find those in the same line of character as we found in that Boston immigration judge and send them all home, and bring some respect and dignity back to our courts, by nominating judges with the right character.
