Data Source: RAPS

  • Nationals of Mexico submitted the most asylum applications in FY 2001, followed by the People’s Republic of China and Colombia.
  • There has been a dramatic increase this fiscal year in new receipts covered by asylum reform. Many of these applicants are Mexican nationals who have been in the United States for a long period of time. A great number of these applications are rejected for failing to meet the one year filing deadline and failing to establish extraordinary or changed circumstances excusing them from the one year deadline.
