Due Process

Check out the latest episode of my podcast.

This week Matthew and I are joined by former Immigration Judge Paul Schmidt to discuss the dwindling due process in our Immigration Courts. Matthew discusses his experience with Castro Tum, a case hand picked by the Attorney General to make life worse for literally everyone. Is the AG intentionally trying to overwhelm the Immigration Courts in order to justify extreme actions and the destruction of due process. Spoiler alert: yes.

Paul Schmidt’s blog is, it’s a great source for immigration hot takes.
