Executive Office for Immigration Review, Houston Immigration Court
600 Jefferson Street, Suite 900
The Houston Immigration Court falls under the jurisdiction of the Department of Justice's Executive Office for Immigration Review. Located in Downtown Houston, the Court has four sitting judges who hear cases ranging from asylum and withholding to cancellation of removal. The Court primarily decides whether foreign-born individuals, who are charged by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with violating immigration law, should be ordered removed from the United States or should be granted relief or protection from removal and be permitted to remain in this country.
