By Jorge Rivas

From fiscal years 2009 to 2014 Muñoz ruled on 643 asylum claims, denying 93.8%. Muñoz’s denial rate is one of the highest in the country, according to an analysis of 270 judged tracked by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a nonpartisan research center out of Syracuse University. Compared to Muñoz’s denial rate of 93.8%, nationally during this same period, immigration court judges denied 48.5% of asylum claims. Of the 643 asylum claims Muñoz reviewed, she granted 40 stays, gave no conditional grants, and denied 603 requests, according to TRAC.
