The Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) has the final say on who can enter or stay in the US. The EOIR interprets and administers federal immigration law by conducting immigration court proceedings, appellate reviews, and administrative hearings. The EOIR consists of the Office of Chief Immigration Judge, the Board of Immigration Appeals, and the Office of Chief Administrative Hearing Officer, among others. The organization adjudicates immigration cases involving detained aliens, criminal aliens, and aliens seeking asylum as a form of relief from removal. The EOIR is a division within the US Department of Justice.
