By Matt Shuham

Worse than that, what if the disappearing records are the asylum applications of vulnerable people seeking protection in the United States? That's what Susan Long, a statistician and co-founder of TRAC, the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University asked herself this week. "It was really...what can I say? Just shocking," she told TPM in a phone call Thursday.
