Exiled from asylum
By Gary Fineout and Matt Dixon

According to Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, immigration judges decided a record number of asylum cases in 2019—and denied the vast majority of them. TRAC’s analysis indicates nearly 70,000 requests for asylum were ruled on last year, with slightly more than 20,000 actually granted. The average wait time for a decision was 1,030 days. Cameroon was the only African nation in the top 10 for individuals seeking asylum.
