Syracuse University Report on Asylum Rates of Indiviudal Immigration Judges

The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University released information about the asylum decisions of 233 individual judges in the nation's special Immigration Courts. This report is available in an updated application developed by TRAC their website.

What is interesting to note, the overall denial rate of all asylum petitions in 53.2% during the latest period reviewed, 2006-2010. However, if the alien is not represented by an attorney, as 11% of all asylum seekers were, then that subcategory's denial rate rises to 88%.

In our immigration courts in San Francisco, IJ Murry leads the pack in denying over 90% of all the asylum cases he hears.

This is the link for the full statistics of all the IJ's across the country.
