Trump's War on Immigrants Leaves a Million Lives in Limbo
By Yolanda Martinez

Nobody knows exactly how many immigrants are seeking asylum in the United States right now. One indication the figure has been rising: apprehensions along the border of people travelling with families jumped 42 percent to more than 105,000 in the last fiscal year. Overall, the number of court decisions on asylum claims rose in the last fiscal year by more than 10,000, to 42,224. About 65 percent of claims were denied, according by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, compared to 60 percent the year before.
