US immigration judges and their union are pushing back after an official DOJ newsletter included a link to an extremist blog.
The blog post from VDare discussed the Justice Department’s efforts to decertify the judge’s union, and included the term “kritarch.” A word recently been taken up by anti-Semites and white nationalists, the New York Times reports. VDare routinely publishes content from such hate groups.
Some immigration judges are pushing back against the administration for what they say are attempts turn them into law enforcers as opposed to impartial judges.
DOJ officials say the newsletter’s content is compiled by a third-party. Still some are demanding an apology.
