Editorial: Trump is winning his crusade against asylum seekers

The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University, which collects and aggregates a wide range of federal data, reports that immigration judges who work for the Justice Department, not the federal courts are granting asylum seekers' appeals half as often as they did a year ago. Through June, courts revived less than 15 percent of the asylum claims that had been rejected by immigration agents, who make the initial determination whether an asylum seeker had a credible fear of persecution if returned home.
