York Immigration Court has denied most asylum — but why?
By Dylan Segelbaum

In fiscal years 2011–2016, judges at York Immigration Court denied 83.3 percent of asylum claims, according to data from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. That’s more than 30 points greater than the national average. There’s no one reason, immigration attorneys and experts say, why the denial rate is much higher than average in York. Instead, they point to factors including the difficulty of representing clients who are being detained, high caseloads and rulings from the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals.
