Asylum Denials at a 25-Year Low, But Still Distributed Unevenly
By Elise Foley

Immigration judges are denying fewer requests for asylum than at any other time in the past 25 years, according to a report out today from Syracuse’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. During the first nine months of fiscal year 2010, judges turned down about half of the requests for asylum they received from illegal immigrants facing deportation. Asylum denials have been generally on the decline since 1986, when judges denied 89 percent of requests for asylum.
