California Clinic Screens Asylum Seekers For Honesty
By Anna Gorman


To be eligible for asylum, applicants must prove they face physical violence, or fear it, based on factors such as race, ethnicity or religion. Even before the Trump administrationís recent crackdown, getting asylum was a difficult and time-consuming proposition. In 2017, only about 38 percent of asylum seekers in the U.S. were granted that status by the immigration court, according to data from the nonpartisan Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University.
