Fox News Contributor Suggests Migrant Father, Daughter's Drowning Was Their Own Fault: 'Come Here Legally
By Jason lemon

A report by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) research center at Syracuse University examined 2018 data, showing that an increasing number of asylum claims were denied. "In 65.0 percent of these decisions this past year asylum was denied. This is the sixth year in a row that denial rates have risen," the report said. While President Donald Trump, Republican lawmakers and right-wing pundits have repeatedly suggested that Central American migrants coming to the southern U.S. border are criminals and violent, aide workers and activists have pointed out that assessment is highly inaccurate. The vast majority are individuals and families fleeing political violence, high crime rates and economic instability in their home countries.
