Let's say your case gets to that point, does the immigration judge review the WHOLE case, meaning your A-file? If so, aren't they supposed to look into it a day before for each case the next day to be prepared? If the hearings are brief 15-20 minutes, as many claim, how do judges get the time to review your A-file prior the beginning of the hearing for each person? How does that process work, so that the judge will acquaint himself/herself with each individual case that's going to be brought up in front of him? Ca you please explain the process?
Another question: I heard that presenting evidences to IJs is less strict than in general types of court hearings. For example, you don't have to have an actual witness, but an affidavit would work. In this situation, can the immigrant presentemails to refute fraud claims? if so, how would the IJ know that it is not the immigrant himself typing up an email for his needs to pretend that the email was written to him by another person? Emails can be faked by anyone, so can an email still be considered as evidence if the person who supposedly wrote that is not present in court? I'm just trying to understand how likely emails would be accepted as evidences by the immigrant if the same immigrant could sit and write whatever "email" he wants by pretending that it was written to him? How would this type of evidence submission for immigration purposes in deportation proceedings/removal work? Even affidavits could be easily faked if those people who supposedly write them are not present, but my question is more concerning email submissions as evidences. I am sure that you would agree that no one would know if the emails were written or not except the immigrant himself, so how does the IJ see this aspect of email evidence?
