This report "examines the arbitrary nature of U.S. asylum policy and the reasons for it. The series found that some judges granted asylum so rarely that applicants, in effect, lost their cases the day they were assigned to one of those judges." In addition, the investigation found immigration courts varied in their lenience to immigrants. Consequently, the series provoked the Justice Department to establish a new rule which "limits the authority of district managers to detain asylum seekers".
