Court Orders Trump Admin To Give Asylum-Seekers Fair Parole Hearings

This is a big deal https://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/court-orders-trump-admin-to-give-asylum-seekers-fair-parole-hearings

A federal judge in Washington ruled Monday that the Trump administration is violating its own policy by uniformly denying parole to asylum-seekers who have passed their “credible fear” interviews — a key step in the asylum process.

In the decision, the court sided with the immigrants who brought the class action and ordered the Trump administration to restore the practice of granting fair, individual parole hearings to asylum-seekers who have passed that initial threshold. Prevailing at the parole hearing means that an asylum-seeker is released from detention and allowed to remain in the country pending a decision on their asylum petition, a process that can take several years.

“To mandate that ICE provide these baseline procedures to those entering our country–individuals who have often fled violence and persecution to seek safety on our shores–is no great judicial leap,” U.S. District Judge James Boasberg observed dryly.

Under the Trump administration, Boasberg wrote, “parole rates have plummeted from over 90% to nearly zero” and the Department of Homeland Security has shifted from individually considering whether each asylum-seeker should be granted parole until their hearing to uniformly denying such requests.

“The numbers here are irrefutable,” he notes in his opinion.
