Transcription Support for DOJ EOIR
Immigration reform has undoubtedly been a hot-button issue in the political landscape for several years, perhaps no more so than right now. Through the constant debates in Washington, the Department of Justice (DOJ) Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) has continued to conduct over 1,000 new immigration review hearings per month. For nearly two years NCC has provided EOIR with accurate verbatim transcripts of a variety of proceedings, all related to upholding the immigration laws in place.
Our team of experienced editors in the Multimedia and Event Production Solutions (MEPS) division produces a large volume of transcripts for EOIR in an accurate and timely fashion. Furthermore, we have transitioned – along with EOIR – to an electronic delivery system, while continuing to make physical deliveries of transcripts several times a week.
EOIR is tasked with deciding whether foreign-born individuals, charged by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with violating immigration laws, should be ordered removed from the country or be granted relief or protection from removal and be permitted to remain in the United States.
NCC has been privileged to serve DOJ since 2007, beginning with our transcription support for the U.S. Marshals Service. We are honored to play a role in EOIR’s adjudication of the voluminous hearings it conducts throughout the nation’s 59 immigration courts on a daily basis. We are pleased to reliably make communication and collaboration happen for EOIR staff and the nearly 250 immigration judges who utilize the transcripts we generate to aid their decision-making process.
