I heard the immigration courts in the blue states spprove more assylum claims than red states. So they're more likely to get to stay if their hearing is in NY than if it was in Texas. They're basically helping them stay in that regard. Its also probably a lot easier for them to get off-the-books work in urban areas.

I doubt this is true. IJs are federal government attorneys and employees of the DOJ. States don’t have any input, not even through their senators like they do for appointing article III judges. Anecdotally I’ve practiced in front of IJs in multiple immigration courts and some of the toughest I’ve encountered have been in Blue Colorado and California. One of the most generous I encountered was in Texas
