Asylum Denial Rate Reaches All Time Low

Very timely Justice Department data show that Immigration Judges are declining substantially fewer requests for asylum. Denial rates have reached the lowest level in the last quarter of a century according to a new analysis by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC).

“One factor contributing to the improved success of the asylum seekers is that a higher proportion of the total are represented by counsel. It must be noted, however, that the number of those seeking asylum in court proceedings has fallen.”

This is a very enlightening article and at the bottom you can look at individual immigration judge reports and their denial of asylum applications rate.  Very interesting! I have three immigration court asylum cases in the next two months with three different judges.
