Ask PolitiFact: Did President Joe Biden grant ‘mass amnesty’ to over 350,000 immigrants?
By Madison Czopek

The New York Post article said the Biden administration "is operating a program of ‘mass amnesty’ for migrants." As evidence, it pointed to data from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a data gathering and research organization at Syracuse University partly focused on immigration-related topics. In May, the organization released a report on immigration court asylum application case outcomes since fiscal year 2014. Federal fiscal years run from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30. Biden took office Jan. 20, 2021. The New York Post’s article relied on data from the report that showed increasing numbers of asylum applicants had been allowed to remain in the U.S. without being granted asylum or other relief since fiscal year 2022.
