Five barriers the Honduran caravan of immigrants might find when they get to the U.S. to seek asylum
By Dianne Solis

Last year, about 120,000 asylum claims were filed in the immigration courts, nearly four times as many as in 2014, according to Justice Department data. Although the Syracuse-University nonprofit the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse calculates data differently than the Justice Department, it found that that 62 percent of asylum-seekers in 2017 were denied asylum. That denial rate jumps to almost 80 percent for Hondurans.
