Federal Data: Majority of Border Crossers Denied Asylum to Stay in U.S.

John Binder, Breitbart, June 20, 2023

The majority of border crossers continue to be denied asylum to stay in the United States, even when they are released directly into the nation’s interior by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

While President Joe Biden’s DHS releases tens of thousands of border crossers and illegal aliens into the U.S. interior every month, the majority will be found to have invalid claims for asylum, federal data confirms.


Newsday reports:


When the cases do finally go before a judge, most have been denied. From October 2022 to May 2023, about 53% of asylum-seekers nationwide who went before an immigration judge were denied, with large numbers coming from Latin America and Asia {snip}

Likewise, in Fiscal Year 2023, the majority of border crossers and illegal aliens released into the U.S. interior after claiming “credible fear” at the southern border ended up not having valid asylum claims.
