Abstract:     
In this paper, I examine the consequences of the changes in the administrative procedures for appeals in immigration cases for circuit court judges. I discuss these changes and offer a model of decision making in immigration appeals. By analyzing a newly collected dataset of immigration decisions, I find that these reforms have dramatically changed how judges make decisions in immigration cases.
