ICE officials noted that 90 percent of asylum seekers easily pass the first step entering the United States. Most illegal immigrants now claim asylum, “credible fear,” citing danger to their lives if they return home, according to reports. However, only 20 percent of the people are actually granted asylum. Unfortunately, by that time, they have disappeared into the fabric of America, never reporting to court.
After they claim credible fear they still need to go through the judicial system. The process is lengthy — longer than ICE can detain immigrants — taking 45 to 60 days to see a judge. By this time, they have already been released.
