Jeff Sessions Is Reportedly Gearing Up to Gut Asylum Protections for Domestic Violence Victims
By Jorge Rivas

Almost 62 percent of asylum decisions in 2017 were denied, according to The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. Asylum requests decisions often depend on the judge who hears your case. For example, TRAC found that in San Francisco, the odds of denial varied from 9.4 percent all the way up to 97.1 percent depending on the judge you had. “This is the fifth year in a row that denial rates have risen. Five years ago the denial rate was just 44.5 percent,” according to TRAC.
