Despite political war over immigration, majority of Americans want safe, clean conditions for asylum-seekers
By Jeff Gammage

Nearly 950,000 immigration cases of all types are pending before the courts, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. In fiscal year 2017, the most recent data available, according to the Migration Policy Institute in Washington, the United States granted asylum to 26,568 people. Asylum is a legal means of staying and working in the U.S., available to those who the government determines have been targeted in their homeland because of their religion, politics, race, nationality, or membership in a particular social group.
