Trump Officials Give Permanent Promotion to Asylum-Denying Miami Immigration Judge
By Manuel Madrid

Goodwin has a strong background in immigration enforcement, having worked as an associate legal adviser and assistant chief counsel for Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The judge, who presides over the court in Miami's Krome migrant detention center, began hearing cases in 2017. As of the end of last year, she had an asylum denial rate of 89 percent, according to Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. That's far above the national average of 57 percent during the same period and almost a full 10 percentage points higher than the average for the Miami immigration court as a whole.
