In “Approaching the Bench from inside the Immigration Court” (published by AuthorHouse), author William K. Zimmer’s new nonfiction book, readers are invited into the United States immigration court and regaled with stories from a retired immigration judge.
“Seasoned with observations and some anecdotal humor, ‘Approaching the Bench from inside the Immigration Court’ serves as a practical guide for attorneys and laymen who are interested in immigration matters within the jurisdiction of the United States immigration courts,” says Zimmer. The book also presents a historical overview regarding the role of the immigration judge and immigration law. This includes, but is not limited to, suggestions for safeguarding independent decision making and improving procedures used to initiate and adjudicate cases in United States immigration courts.
An excerpt from the book:
“While the subject of citizenship by birth is still fresh, a real life story about a United States citizenship claim in immigration court seems appropriate. One of my fellow retired Immigration Judges told me about a pro se respondent (a respondent who is representing himself or herself) who insisted that he was a United States citizen by birth. The Immigration Judge had explained to him that there were only two ways to obtain United States citizenship; by birth or naturalization. The government trial attorney perfunctorily submitted a Mexican birth certificate relating to the respondent who enthusiastically pulled out a baptismal record from a small town in Texas and declared ‘But I was born again in the United States!’”
