Default Asylum Attorney - Asylum Approval Rate Reaches All Time High

According to TRAC, Justice Department data show that Immigration Judges are declining substantially fewer requests for asylum. Denial rates have reached the lowest level in the last quarter of a century.

Twenty five years ago, in FY 1986, almost nine out of ten (89%) of the asylum requests in the Immigration Courts were denied. While the annual rates have gone up and down during the ensuing years, only half (50%) of the requests were denied during the first nine months of FY 2010 a record low.

One factor contributing to the improved success of the asylum seekers is that a higher proportion of the total are represented by counsel. It must be noted, however, that the number of those seeking asylum in court proceedings has fallen.

he growing success of asylum seekers is partly attributable to increases in the proportion who obtain legal representation. The latest figures show that more than nine out of every ten (91%) are now represented, up from just over half (52%) twenty-five years ago in FY 1986.

Asylum is relief for a foreign national to remain in the U.S. under legal status because the foreign national has suffered past persecution in his home country or country of last habitual residence, or because the foreign national has a well founded fear of future persecution in his home country or country of last habitual residence and such persecution is based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group. So having a competent lawyer preparing your asylum case is a must in order to have a chance to win your Asylum case.
