A "Nation of Immigrants"?

Families are being denied protection: 90% of asylum claims fall at first hurdle after US process change, a new lawsuit alleges. Plaintiffs claim under 10% of women and children at a center in Texas pass their initial ‘credible fear’ interview, down from 97%. The vital first step in the asylum-seeking process has nearly been extinguished at the largest immigrant family detention center in the country, according to a lawsuit. This unprecedented drop in approved interviews comes without any public regulations, directives or guidance about changes to what is known as the “credible fear” interview process. Would-be immigrants must pass the credible fear interview to present their asylum case in immigration court.
