Newsom will travel to El Salvador next month in first international trip as California governor
By Taryn Luna

Seeking to escape poverty, gang violence and corruption, nearly 22,400 Salvadorans began the process to seek asylum in the U.S. in fiscal year 2018, according to data from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services on affirmative asylum applications and interviews. Information from Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse shows U.S. immigration courts rejected more than 75% of 8,235 asylum cases involving Salvadorans decided that year — more denials than any other country.
