John Malcolm, Senior Legal Fellow, Heritage Foundation

Now the department is bracing for thousands of petitions. John Malcolm, a senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, told Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp why presidential pardons have declined over the years.

Immigration Review Office combats fraud with new online system

The Justice Department's EOIR recently launched its new eRegistry system for attorneys who do work before the immigration courts. The system is one step toward making the office's business processes all electronic.
