Certain aliens have to go to Immigration Court to get the benefits they seek. These include those whose applications for Asylum were denied after adjudication by officers with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS); and those detained after seeking to enter the United States through illegal means and were not eligible for the process known as Expedited Removal, among others.  

Persons whose applications for relief are denied by Immigration Judges, especially legal permanent residents whose crimes make them removable from the US under applicable US laws, can also find recourse in non-Article III courts, like the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). 

Many cases that have made their way through the Courts established solely to hear purely Immigration-related cases, such as those involving Asylum claims or aliens removable because of conviction for crimes, also often make their ways to and through the regular (or Article III) courts, such as the respective Circuit Courts of Appeal or the US Supreme Court.

In addition, aliens seeking Adjustment of Status to US permanent residents but who believe adjudication of their cases to be unduly held up or delayed by officers with the USCIS can approach the lower Article III courts (such as the US District courts in any state, as opposed to the state district courts in such states) for orders that will compel such USCIS officers to either complete action on such Adjudications or give the federal court reviewing the matter why there is such an undue delay.
