Biden Will Try to Unmake Trump's Immigration Agenda. It Won't Be Easy
By Julia Preston

Under Trump, a small but expert group of officials set out to shut down the asylum system, which the president scorned as a magnet for huge flows of migrants. They largely succeeded. Over four years, grants of asylum in immigration courts declined to 25 percent of cases, while denials almost tripled to 73 percent, official figures show. In a busy court like Houston, one of the country’s largest, ten of the 13 judges have denied more than 90 percent of asylum cases, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, or TRAC, at Syracuse University.
