Immigration Courts are special administrative courts that only hear immigration-related matters.  There are over 200 judges in over 50 Immigration Courts in the United States.  These courts are located in 24 states and Puerto Rico.  A list of Immigration Court locations can be found on the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) website.

 In addition to these permanent locations, Immigration Courts will sometimes set up temporary courts.  These courts are often located in cities where there are a significant number of immigration cases, but not enough to justify a permanent Immigration Court.

 Finally, Immigration Court judges will often hold various hearings.  These include hearings at Department of Homeland Security detention centers, as well as federal, state, and local correctional facilities.
