Just 108 of the thousands of unaccompanied minors illegally crossing the U.S. border have been granted asylum in 2014, in a process that often takes more than a year, members of the U.S. Congress heard on Tuesday.
But with immigrants usually making their formal asylum requests more than 10 months after first being apprehended, most of those applicants arrived the previous year.
Of the 167 unaccompanied children asylum cases adjudicated on the merits in [Fiscal Year 2014] through the third quarter, 108 have been granted asylum status, Rodríguez told a House panel.
But in a sign of how the process is mired in legal hurdles and delays, only two of those minors granted asylum were apprehended this year, he said.

More lies from the propaganda machine.
These “children” were in so much danger from the drug cartels that run the corrupt governments in Central America that the parents give these same drug cartels thousands of dollars AND THE CHILDREN to smuggle them into the USA. This makes no sense.
Shame on the Democrats and their fellow liars in the media for trying to foist this amnesty scam on the taxpayers of this country.
Obama appointee to the DHS agency, UCIS head, Leon Rodríguez testified---sort of. Totally biased---said his second language was Spanish----and that he once belonged to Casa Manana (or something), that was advocating for unlimited immigration.
The lock-stepping Rodríguez gets grade A for Evasion and for loyally following orders from the Commandant in the WH. Rodríguez' lips are super-glued to the WH behind.
When Democrats questioned him, he knew everything and responded in great detail. But to Republicans he whined about being new to the jobs---and parroted "gotta get back to you on that."
Repub Cong/men Jason Chaffetz, Louis Gohmert and Randy Forbes were standout patriots, protecting Americans from the invading hordes at the border.
Cong Gohmert stopped the show with his probing judicial-like queries---the former judge's brilliant circumlocution, and his prodigious knowledge of the law was awesome---as well as his ability to nail Rodríguez to the wall.
WRT drug cartels paid $6000 to "guide" the hordes over the birder---"Would you call them criminals?," he asked Rodríguez. Making the point that if the hordes were coming here to escape drug cartels, why is it they pay the violent breed to get over the border?
Rodríguez made a show of his legal bgrnd---but he paled agaimst Goehmert's expertise. Rodríguez, as a former prosecutor, and officer of the court, should know that the US justice system is not amenable to dispensing justice to litigants w/ "unclean hands"---a legal term meaning those who have committed crimes. His license to practice law should be pulled.
Sad to see Cong Jason Chaffetz's resignation, knowing we'd get nowhere with the lock-stepping Rodríguez----prostrate in obeisance to Obama---his lips pressed firmly to the WH behind.
Cong Guttierez (Dim-Ill) made a lamebrain appearance--- this imbecile had to have used voter fraud to get into office---no one in their right mind would vote for the Spanglish-speaking moron.
We need to find out (1) how many identities he's using, (2) how many govt checks he, his family, and his staff are cashing, and, (3) Guttierez's membership in violent organizations advocating the overthrow of the US govt.
Members of some of the United States' most notorious street gangs have infiltrated shelters housing illegal immigrant minors from Central America and are recruiting them, say Homeland Security sources. An estimated 57,000 minors from Central America have flooded across the border from Mexico to the U.S. in recent months, and gang leaders are reportedly filling their ranks from among them.
Transnational gangs such as the Mara Salvatruca, also known as MS-13, and the 18th Street gang are using established juvenile members from Central America to cross the border and recruit other children to the cartels, say sources. Recruiting drive:
There are reports that gangs are trying to recruit young immigrants from Border Protection facilities where they're being held According to Fox News, Border Control agents have witnessed gang members using a Red Cross phone bank at the facility at Nogales, Arizona, to 'recruit, enlist and pressure' other minors into crossing the border. Shawn Moran, vice president of the National Border Control Patrol Council, a union which represents border agents, says agents have witnessed the recruiting process.
The Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement said earlier this week that they have no knowledge or evidence that gangs are recruiting immigrant minors. (Excerpt) Read more at dailymail.co.uk ...
Interesting exchanges on this topic at Tuesday's House hearing on immigration.
<><> Patriot Cong Randy Forbes said Americans need to know if violent gang members are walking their streets. Forbes asked UCIS--a DHS agency--headed by Obama appointee Leon Rodrigues---whether the agency asked applicants about gang membership---and when they invariably reply no, how does the agency know whether it's true or not?
The calculated Rodriguez would not reveal information---Forbes insisted on knowing "do you even ask them if they're gang members."
<><> Even more interesting was watching brilliant Cong Louie Gohmert (Rep-Tx) set the trap for the oily Rodriguez.
Former judge Gohmert's brilliant circumlocution was awesome. He nailed the mealy-mouth Rodrigues to the wall.
CONG GOHMERT: WRT drug cartels paid $6000 to "guide" the hordes over the border---"Would you, as a former prosecutor, call them criminals?," he nonchalantly asked Gonzales.
The smirking Rodrigues stepped headlong into the trap as Cong Gohmert casually hoisted him on his own petard.....making the point that if the hordes were coming here to escape drug cartels, why is it they consort w/ the criminals, and pay the violent breed to get over the border?
and the number of illegal aliens deported so far this year is ...???
if they didn’t win the jackpot of US asylum why are they still here ???
