Immigrants Who Were Rejected For Asylum Have The Right To A Federal Judge Review, A Court Ruled
By Hameed Aleaziz, Adolfo Flores and Chris Geidner


The appeals court which Trump has blasted as "out-of-control" and "activist" held that Thuraissigiam had brought two specific claims to the court that could be reviewed: whether the government followed the required procedures and applied the correct legal standards when evaluating his credible fear claim. The ruling comes as the number of reviews by immigration judges who find an immigrant has a credible fear of returning to their country decreased starting January 2018. The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University found that by June 2018, only about 15% of immigration judge reviews found the asylum-seeker had a credible fear about half the level seen in the second half of 2017.
