U.S. judge orders release reviews for asylum seekers

U.S. judge orders release reviews for asylum seekersThe U.S. government has been nearly uniformly detaining asylum seekers who were initially found to have credible fears of persecution instead of releasing them pending hearings on their individual cases as required, a federal judge ruled on Monday in a setback for the Trump administration. The current release rate for the asylum seekers at five U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement offices is approaching zero, compared with over 90 percent just a few years ago, Judge James Boasberg of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia said in a 38-page opinion. The government could not explain the steep drop while claiming a release directive is in effect, Boasberg said.
