Dissident Fleeing Maduro's Thugs Stuck in Trump's Asylum Crackdown

“Part of the hardship, and you can even say cruelty, has to do with making people want to quit and ask to be deported,” Marcano said. He wouldn’t quit, even after he was chained for a third move. This time he wound up in the Stewart Detention Center in tiny Lumpkin, Georgia. It was a bad break. Marcano’s case was assigned there to Judge Dan Trimble, who from 2014 to 2019 rejected 451 out of the 481 asylum petitions he handled. That denial rate of 94% was much higher than the national average of 63%, according to Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse.
