Bush Loyalists Hand-Picked As EOIR Immigration Judges
<!-- Start of Article --> [Also by Juan Mann: 09/20/04 - Fire Michael J. Creppy —DOJ's $11.5 Million Man! 03/09/04 - The EOIR's other directive -- White males need not apply 05/04/04 - The Enemy Within [II]: A Treason Lobby Pro Bono PR Office Inside EOIR!] The selection process for immigration judges at the Department of Justice's Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) has gone from one non-competitive extreme to another over the past ten years – from "white males need not apply" to patronage appointments of Bush Administration loyalists. In the wake of an $11.5 million class action lawsuit settlement against the DOJ/EOIR for anti-white male discrimination in September, 2004, it seems that immigration judge positions are now being awarded without public job announcement by the DOJ's Office of Attorney Recruiting and Management. Perhaps to avoid further charges of discrimination, the entire immigration judge selection process has gone behind closed doors under the federal government's "Schedule A" hiring process. The whole mess started because of the DOJ/EOIR's apparent multi-cultural zeal during the Clinton Administration years—hire anyone but white males. But some of the bypassed candidates refused to follow the "diversity" script and sued. In September, 2004, the DOJ announced that, pending final approval by an administrative judge of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), it would pay up to $11.5 million to settle a class action discrimination law suit filed by white males who were bypassed for immigration judge positions during 1994 and 1995. Although the DOJ paid $11.5 million of taxpayer dollars to make the discrimination lawsuit go away, it did not specifically admit liability for discrimination. And the man in charge of the hiring at the time—Chief Immigration Judge Michael J. Creppy, a 1994 Clinton appointee—remains on the job today. But Creppy's hiring wings have apparently been clipped. Republican forces higher up in the food chain are now picking the immigration judge candidates. And, judging from the resumes of the new hires, the candidates chosen are short on down-in-the-trenches immigration experience—but long on Bush Administration/ Republican Party loyalty. Let's meet three of the EOIR's newest immigration judges:
- Gary D. Malphrus – EOIR immigration judge in Arlington, Virginia.
- James A. Nugent – EOIR Immigration Judge in Oakdale, Louisiana.
- Chris A. Brisack – EOIR Immigration Judge in Houston, Texas.
