Abstract
  • It has long been recognized by the legal community that when an immigrant seeks relief from deportation proceedings through the United States’ immigration courts, the proceedings they undertake are best seen as a game of chance depending on the Immigration Judge who is randomly assigned to their case. This thesis builds on the existing adjudication literature in this field by examining the effects that the Trump administration has produced over adjudication outcomes in comparison to the final term of the Obama administration. A variety of factors relating to the background of Immigration Judges are examined over these timeframes to examine how certain attributes have resulted in judges responding to the pressures of an administration deeply concerned with immigration outcomes. These results are then analyzed within a general judicial utility function framework, representing the first time that such a theory has been expanded to the field of Immigration Judges.
