The abbreviation IJ stands for immigration judge. This is an attorney who has been appointed by the Attorney General as an administrative judge within the Executive Office for Immigration Review, Office of the Chief Immigration Judge, and who is qualified to conduct specified types of proceedings, including deportation, removal, asylum, bond redetermination, rescission, withholding, credible fear, reasonable fear, exclusion, and claimed status review. The decisions of an IJ are final, unless they may be appealed through the Board of Immigrations Appeals (BIA).
The abbreviation IHP stands for Institutional Hearing Program and involves removal hearings being held inside correctional facilities before an alien has completed his or her criminal sentence.
