Very good post and compilation of cases.

I think both you and I agree that ideally, immigration courts should be a lot more independent by giving Article III or IV federal judges original jurisdiction over immigration cases. Perhaps, the same process could be adopted as with the habeas cases - magistrate is a first line of review, with the right to appeal to the district judge, and then to the circuit court. This way, district judges could correct many fact-specific or evidentiary problems that circuit court of appeals are ill-suited to deal with.
